The Roadmap is a remix of the Michigan Open Book, MC3, and GIANTS all in one place. In this lesson, students explore the movement of the French into Michigan and the influence of these newcomers on native cultures. Students analyze illustrations, maps, narrative text, timelines, and other sources as they gather historical evidence about this time period in Michigan history.
The Roadmap is a remix of the Michigan Open Book, MC3 and GIANTS all in one place. In this lesson, students explore how conflicts between the French and British led to the British taking control of Michigan. Students then examine the impact of the British on native cultures. Using illustrations, maps, timelines, and other sources, students gather historical evidence about this time period in Michigan history. Throughout the lesson a focus is placed on the identification of causes and effects.
The Roadmap is a remix of Michigan Open Book, MC3 and Giants all in one place. In this lesson students learn about early pioneer life in Michigan, including why settlement in Michigan was slow at first. Through primary sources and literature, students explore the challenges pioneers faced. They also analyze artifacts of an early settler cabin from an archaeological dig. Finally, students use what they have learned to construct a historical narrative about daily life in the early settlements of Michigan.
This is a Roadmap that is a remix of Michigan Open Book, MC3, and GIANTS all in one place. In this lesson, students first explore factors that led to increased population growth in Michigan. Students create a timeline and use maps and other resources as they learn how Michigan attained statehood. A focus is placed on the causal relationships between various events. In addition, the influence of individuals in creating history is addressed through examples such as Lewis Cass, Stevens T. Mason, and the many early settlers who came to Michigan.
This Roadmap is a full year plan that covers the geography, economics, government and history of Michigan.
This Roadmap contains teaching videos and activities that require students to solve problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length. Students will create a video to show that they know how to solve problems involving perimeter after completing the activities with success.
In this unit students explore the United States through the social studies discipline of geography. In exploring the United States in spatial terms, students first consider the location of the United States. They learn about and use a variety of geographic tools such as maps, globes, and satellite images to answer the question “Where is the United States?” Next, students examine the concept of place relative to the United States. They use songs, stories, photographs, and aerial images to investigate the question, “What is it like there?” and to describe significant physical and human characteristics. Students also use the concept of regions to compare sections of the United States. They build on their understanding that regions are defined by common characteristics and explore ways in which the United States can be divided into regions. Students then compare a region to which Michigan belongs with other regions in the United States using special purpose maps. In doing so, students examine geographic features such as elevation, climate, and patterns of population density in the United States. As a culminating project, students summarize what they have learned by creating a poster, picture book, Flipbook slide show or other visual describing the United States according to the geographic themes of location, place, and regions.
This is one lesson in the geography theme with the driving question, "What is Geography?".
Try to answer the driving question about the mysteries of the Great Lakes. Through the years there have been many sightings of mysterious creatures and structures. Learn about these mysteries.
This BrainVenture takes you through the process of how eggs get to your home. It also explains that eggs can be different colors and that there is a way to determine that color by looking at the chicken.
Learn about how coins are made and to identify the coins through videos and games.
This Roadmap looks at the physical trait of a Hermit Crab that help it survive. The reading is leveled and guides the students to compare and recognize cause and effect within the reading. Students will then create a virtual aquarium and hermit crab of their own. Students will then learn how to use the animation feature of the Flipbook by making their hermit crab walk across the aquarium. Next they are open to make a book of their favorite animals in different environment. They will use a label to name the physical traits and tell how they help them survive.
Students learn about chameleons as they read, write, listen, and create.
In this BrainVenture student take a look at the manatee and its environment in the Everglades of Florida. Students read and watch videos about the manatee then do a comparison of the sea cow and the cow. Students are also prompted to help save the manatees by writing a letter.
Students learn about dolphins as they read, write, listen, and create.
Students learn about ducks as they read, write, listen, and create.
This is a look at how coins and bills are produced along with some practice with identifying and calculating using money.
Students learn about sharks as they read, write, listen, and create.
Students learn about how crayons are made as they read, listen, write, & create.
