Dear George Using Census Data

Sixth graders discuss differences in the way in which information was disseminated in George Washington's time and how it is acquired in contemporary times. They examine Census of Agriculture data and a modern day version of a letter that Arthur Young could have written to George Washington. They write a letter in response that includes information about land value, crops, yields, and livestock prices. Also, the use the information to make a PowerPoint presentation, poster, or brochure.

Lesson Planet has helped me differentiate my classroom as needed. I always find it easy to adapt work for struggling learners but find it more difficult to adapt work for higher level learners. By using lesson planet I get great ideas to create fun, challenging work for my higher level learners.
