Lesson Objective

Lesson Plan

Focused Research:

Raising Questions - Students will raise questions for further research. Students will research deeply one United States National Landmark and one Chinese National Landmark.  

Note to Teacher: The teacher may use the google presentation format as a guiding tool when raising questions.  The teacher may also want to keep record of student driven questions for further investigation.

As a result of research, students will create a Google presentation, using classroom google chromebooks, that includes the following requirements:

Google Presentation Requirements:

Clear restating of your research question

Geographic Location on a world map

Key facts about each national landmark

Similarities and Differences between the two landmarks

Citations of your research

Further questions for investigation: What would you like to know more about as a result of your research?

How does this new learning impact me and my world?

Note to Teacher:  This is a multi-day research time.  Students will research in class, in our school library, and at home.  For correct citation format, please see the rubrics in the resources section.
