Listening Closely and Taking Notes in Expert Groups: Colonial Trade Podcast

This Listening Closely and Taking Notes in Expert Groups: Colonial Trade Podcast lesson plan also includes:

The twelfth instructional activity of this unit builds on the skills developed in the previous instructional activity, as fourth graders continue their quest to become experts on colonial trade by listening to interviews with historical re-enactors. This activity requires that pupils have access to computers or MP3 players, as they will be accessing podcasts found on the Internet. Working collaboratively in their expert groups, young scholars listen multiple times to the interviews as they record notes and answer questions about their specific trade. A great instructional activity that exposes learners to alternative resources to use when researching a topic.
