Cover ELA and social studies standards as students immerse themselves in creating a story about exploring community ties by building a park.
Students build reading and writing skills as they role-play park planners, investigate trees and plants, and choose playground features.
When students discover graffiti and bullying in the park, they must form new rules and decide on a course of action to make their park safe for the community to enjoy, in the unit’s critical incident, which is designed to prompt civic discussion and decision-making skills.
