Central America: United States of Central America? (A Debate)

Students view a world map and discuss the differences between state, country, and city labels. They research to find the square mileage for several locations. Locations are organized by size, and labeled as to the category (state, city, country). Students discuss their opinions of the countries of Central America forming one country. They research to find facts to support their position and participate in a debate.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
