Transportation Lesson for SmartBoard
Transportation Then and Now
I used this lesson a couple weeks ago during our social studies unit on comparing the past and today. While I like to create things, I don't often like to recreate the wheel if there's something out there that will meet my needs. This just wasn't the case when it came to transportation. So, I made a short little SmartBoard lesson to help illustrate how transportation has changed over the years. It includes a timeline and sequencing activity, a couple of thinking maps, a sorting activity and a graph at the end.
Here's a couple of pics. I will upload this lesson to TpT (it's free), just as soon as I finish typing this post.
I'm a mom to 2 great boys, 17 and 12. This is my 12th year teaching. I have taught 1st grade for the past 6 years and kindergarten for the first 6. I love to make learning new and fun for my kids. I truly believe that learning is a lifelong process, which is why I decided to try my hand at blogging. I know I will learn a lot along the way and hope to share some ideas with others as well.
