3rd grade student teacher needs your help plzzzzzz
posted by Trisha .
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!!!!!!
Did you check the site I posted about bus safety? That has some activities.
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.
How about having each student write an illustrated book about New York's public transportation?
Have you considered a field trip: Subway to the ferry, ferry to Staten Island, or such?
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.
Hope my idea worked!
