Property

Students examine a property inventory of a farm owner from 1785 in Sussex County. The inventory is part of a probate file used to settle the estate of the deceased person and includes the estimated value of each piece of property. Slaves are listed as items of property and the class discusses slave ownership and write an essay in response to the discussion.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
