    Hi everyone, I am creating a unit (4-6 weeks long) on community. I am trying to think of some creative and outside of the box ideas.

    So far I have a lot of ideas but not much focus. Of course I will be teaching about the history, culture, government, geography, etc. of our city - but I want to do it in an engaging and meaningful way.

    Some of my ideas are:

    Students deciding on a community project (something they and their families can help do in the community to make a difference)

    Having community members come into the classroom and give talks

    Creating a mini town out of cereal boxes, etc.

    Does anyone have a unit, lesson plan, or idea they can share with me? Anything would be helpful. PM me if you have a unit you can email me.

    Thanks!
    :hugs:

    What grade are you doing this unit with?

    I did a unit with second grade during my student teaching but I couldn't find any of the plans.

    I did have the kids build a model town with small boxes and then we added streets, a river, and other small things. It really looked good when they were finished.

    Never mind about the grade level.

    Just reread your message and saw the third grade symbol.

    And I ask my kids to pay attention...

    LOL. Do you have the plan as a word document? I've just been trying to find sample plans to get ideas. I'll send you my email if you do. =)
