Iowa History Past and Present.
Designed for use with intermediate students, this unit presents eight 45-minute lessons in which students learn about Iowa's history, economic factors, governmental functions, geography, and people. Although the unit is intended primarily for fifth grade students residing in Iowa, it can be used as a model for those interested in developing similar units in other states. Each of the 40 lesson plans includes objectives, suggested materials and activities, and related student materials. The majority of the lessons include map activities centering around a student-made map packet. In addition, the unit gives bulletin board ideas; songs; lists of things to see and places to visit, a unit evaluation checklist for teacher evaluation; a unit evaluation checklist for pupil evaluation; and an extensive bibliography of related books, films, video cassettes, freebies, and other resource materials. This document is one of a collection of materials from the Iowa Education Agency 7 Teacher Center project. (LH)
