3rd grade student teacher needs your help plzzzzzz

posted by .

I am creating a unit on public transportation in New York, but i am having a difficult time designing lessons to teach 3rd graders about public transportation. I was planning on giving the a word search, allowing them to explore various websites, and to interview a grandparent about the types of public transportation in the past.....

DO you have any other ideas as to what other lessons I could incorporate into the unit?
I am stuck! I want them to do activities that are educational and fun.... Please help!!!!!!

    Well to me I think you could just tell your 3rd graders to do a report so they could learn more, or you could just tell them to go to the library and check out a book about it, but make sure you let them prove that they actually read the book.

    Build a train tunnel after doing some research. Then get one of the fathers to set up a model train that will run through the tunnel. The research on the subways will be a good place to start, but tell them the purpose is to build a mini subway.
