Why Hello There! After a fun little getaway to Niagara Falls last week I just had to share this. You know you are a teacher/ homeschool mom when you plan a week’s worth of lessons as you are walking around, exploring a new place on vacation. Unfortunately the girls aren’t quite old enough for these lessons, but I truly can’t wait until they are!
These lessons can be adapted for kids ages 7 and up. They will walk your family through the history of Niagara Falls, the geological forces acting on the waterfalls, an art lesson and so much more.
In this unit you will find activities for a variety of subjects including project ideas. The following is just a few of the topics and activities you will find in this unit.
- History of Niagara Falls
- Free the Falls Movement
- Write a Persuasive Essay / Speech
- Paint a Portrait
- Discuss the geological forces acting on Niagara Falls
- Create a 3D drawing of these forces
- Renewable Energy
- Wind Turbine building project
The complete literature unit can be found by clicking the link below or by visiting my store at Teachers Pay Teachers.
As always feel free to check out the Niagara Falls Pinterest board for more ideas and resources to use as you are researching one of the world’s greatest wonders.
