  1. 1. Lewis and Clark’s Expedition<br />Group2<br />
  2. 2. Upcoming Unit Plan<br />This presentation will guide you through the unit that our class will be starting soon. This project is called “Lewis and Clark’s Expedition”. We will progress through the unit throughout approximately two weeks. The purpose of the unit is to teach students to distinguish between different geographic regions and how they help settlers to survive.<br />
  3. 3. Some Questions to Think About<br />Essential Question<br />-Why should we be aware of the factors of our geographic locations?<br />Content Questions<br /> - What are geographical regions?<br />- What are different types of geographical regions?<br />- What supplies did Lewis and Clark need to take with them on their journey?<br />Unit Questions<br /> - How did Lewis and Clark change the world for North America?<br />- How do geographic regions help settlers to survive?<br />
  4. 4. Standards<br />Social Studies(2004) Grade(s): 5 United States Studies: Beginnings to 1877  1.) Locate physical features that impacted the exploration and settlement of the Americas. Examples: ocean currents, prevailing winds, large forests, major rivers, significant mountain ranges •  Locating states, capitals, and important geographic features east of the Mississippi River •  Identifying major ports in the United States Examples: Mobile, Boston, New York, New Orleans, Savannah<br />
  5. 5. Standards (cont.)<br />Social Studies (2004) Grade(s): 5 United States Studies: Beginnings to 1877  5.) Describe the early colonization of North America and reasons for settlement in the Northern, Middle, and Southern colonies. Examples: colonization of Pennsylvania and Rhode Island for religious freedom, establishment of Georgia as a prison colony, immigration of Europeans in pursuit of greater civil rights and wealth <br />
  6. 6. Objectives<br />The students will be able to identify and distinguish differences in physical geographics.<br />The students will gain understanding of many aspects of the journey and exploration thatLewis and Clark embarked on.<br />
  7. 7. Role of the Teacher<br />I, as the teacher, will give specific instructions and set up guidelines for each period that we work on this project.<br />I will help students and answer any questions that they have regarding the unit.<br />
  8. 8. Role of the student<br />The student is responsible for researching Lewis and Clark’s expedition. <br />The student is also responsible for knowing the answers to the content, unit, and essential questions.<br />
  9. 9. Role of the Parent<br />Parents should make sure their children are doing some research on the unit outside the classroom so that they can keep up.<br />
  10. 10. Benefits<br />At the end of this unit, students will know about all of the different geographic regions which could one day help them decide in what type of region they want to live.<br />
  11. 11. Project-Based Learning<br />Project-Based Learning is a type of learning where students are actively involved in the learning process. With project based learning, the student participates in hands on activities while learning the same material that they would have in a traditional learning setting. Project- based learning is an attempt to keep students more interested while learning more.<br />
