Social Studies: Countries and Technology

Students participate in a travel simulation and have just arrived in Canada. After choosing activities to research, they define their methods of exploration and development on plan sheets. Among the scenarios from which they choose are: interviewing the Prime Minister, illustrating and writing a children's book about Canada, and creating a timeline of Canadian history for a museum. The lesson can be adapted for other countries to research.

Lesson Planet helps me find fantastic ideas to spin off of and approach with my alternative education high school students. They can be difficult to motivate and sometimes when I'm just out of ideas- this site gives me just what I need to add to motivate them!
