1 Anticipatory Set/Hook
Ask: What is your favorite thing to do? Have students record their response on a sticky note and put the note on a sheet of chart paper labeled "Our Favorite Things." 2. Read aloud a few of these items. 3. Tell students to consider no longer being able to do the things they like the most. 4. On a new sticky note, have students write how losing things makes them fee. 5. Put these on a separate sheet of chart paper labeled "Losing Our Favorite Things," and have several students discuss their feelings. 6. Ask the students to think about what it might be like to never have the opportunity to do a favorite activity again- or how their lives may be different if they could no longer play with or use something they love. Example: What might it be like to never be able to play with your best friend again, or how would you feel if there were no more television shows to watch or video games to play? 7.00Now we are going to learn about a time when some people felt they were losing their way of life, while others who never had the opportunity to experience certain things were able to for the first time.
Students will be placed into small groups of 3 or4.
2 Cooperative Learning
Hand out a Comparing Cultures and Economies Chart to each child. Read of the information as a class and discuss. Ask for suggestions as to how you could illustrate the information on the chart.
