Models of American Citizenship

Third graders investigate the concept of American citizenship by pretending to time travel. They travel back in time to visit the eras of Thomas Jefferson, Hellen Keller, Harriet Tubman, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and community heroes. They examine the things that these people did to increase the opportunities the students have today. They write a paragraph about the person of their choice.
