Bauernschub, Mary Beth
In this lesson for implementation in Grade 3, students will explore the pioneers' and settlers' ways of life through drama and songs. Crossing the prairie, living in a sod house, and the growth of Abilene, Kansas, will be explored in the lesson using drama games, role playing, written text, and songs. The lesson offers an overview; suggests length and grade level; lists subjects and subtopics; cites dimensions of learning and intelligences being addressed; notes materials needed; and points out related textbooks and teacher resources. It also discusses relevant National Standards for Arts Education and other standards. The lesson then provides instructional objectives; strategies; a detailed, step-by-step instructional plan; and assessment and extension activities. (NKA)
