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!
