Researching and Note-Taking: Becoming an Expert on a Colonial Trade

This Researching and Note-Taking: Becoming an Expert on a Colonial Trade lesson plan also includes:

Fourth graders work in small groups to become experts on different colonial trades in the eighth lesson of this unit. Working toward the long-term goal of writing a piece of historical fiction, young scholars read informational texts and work collaboratively to take notes on terms related to their specific trade. Learners practice reading and rereading text, first to get a gist of the content, and second to focus on key vocabulary. Make sure dictionaries are available to support students in making sense of the different terms they encounter in their reading. This is a great lesson that supports young researchers as they work with their peers to become experts on a colonial trade.
