ALEX Learning Activities
Title: How It All Started!
Digital Tool: Interactive Tool for The First Thanksgiving
Digital Tool Description: This interactive tool provides videos that embark on the journey of the pilgrims. Students can explore the experiences and historical significance of the pilgrim's voyage, settlement, and first harvest celebration.
Title: Put Yourself in Their Shoes
Digital Tool: Mission US: Think Fast! About the Past App for iPad
Digital Tool Description: This trip lets your students take a step back into a time in history when our nation faced big changes.
Students will be able to complete two missions using this great app. One mission lets them explore life as an apprentice during the time of the American Revolution. The other mission allows them to take part in helping to free a slave via the Underground Railroad.
In this app, students are in a race against time. They are given a limit of 5 minutes to answer a certain number of questions correctly in order to complete the challenge.
This app would be a great extension activity to use after teaching the lesson plan, "Yo! The Slaves Have Gotta Go."
