Rosenwald Third Graders Travel Back in Time

Rosenwald Third Graders Travel Back in Time

Ms. Slim’s third grade students traveled back in time to see if they would have “closed the deal” on the Louisiana Purchase!  Students were immersed in rich non-fiction text to learn about the people and events surrounding this historic event. Working with partners, students were busy diving into the text to find evidence to support reasons why settlers would have chosen to “move west” or “stay in America.”  Students used their research to compare and contrast the decisions early Americans faced in order to build knowledge related to this unit, as well as hone their literary skills.
