Then, through the examination of primary documents, they compare the influences upon black settlers and how those influences were important to the settlement of the Pacific Northwest. They role play an older person telling about their journey in settling the West.

I subscribed to Lesson Planet after I started teaching science at my district's alternative school. Science isn't my specialty so it has been a real life saver! I am able to find lots resources to enrich my lessons! It's a tremendous time saver too! Why reinvent the wheel?
