Kiesner, Eileen F.
In this kindergarten unit, students read "My Blue Suitcase" by Sharon Katz as an introduction to traveling. After reading, students gather resources, including books, magazines, maps, CD-ROMs, videos, and information from the Internet. After collecting resources, students make a collage of the items they will need for the trip they are taking. Included in the unit packet is a detailed guide for students as well as several Internet resources. The teacher's notes describe the unit's purpose, its correlation to history/social science standards, and how to conduct the lesson, including management and assessment tips. (RJC)
