Social Studies: What's My (Nick) Name?

Learners examine the nicknames given to former first ladies, such as Rosalind Carter, and discover how they are based on personality traits. After applying online research skills, they write paragraphs explaining why the nicknames were appropriate to the individual. Then, reflecting on their own traits, they write paragraphs describing a nickname for themselves.

Lesson Planet has been nothing short of amazing! Lesson Planet is a part of my weekly lesson planning regimen. I teach my children the importance of collaboration and I think Lesson Planet is an excellent example of how collaboration can help improve ones learning.
