Oh, The Places You'll Go! or . . . Hop On the Bus, Gus
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Unit on Journeys, Discoveries, and Expeditions for Grades 9-12 Because explorations, journeys, and discoveries are themes widely found in literature and studied as important historical events, students must examine their own lives in that context. Students will analyze how their lives resemble journeys: travel with turns, choices of routes that led to discovery, and evaluating the consequences of those choices. This unit is designed to have students evaluate how historical explorations parallel their own life. Ultimately, students will use basic knowledge of historical exploration to enhance their own life journey.
