Changes are constantly occurring in life. The increase of technology and the needs of mankind continuously force change. The Changes curriculum asks students three main questions: Can people control changes? Can using past information help you predict change? Are changes positive or negative?
Changes Book 3: Communication, Honesty, and Invention asks students: What is the difference between a tall tale, a lie, and a fib? The third book in the Changes series will lead your students on a journey of understanding the nature of change.
Students also will investigage the different ways to communicate, such as with the Braille system, and will come to understand language barriers and how to overcome these barriers. Students' investigation will continue on the topic of inventions and innovations, and how these progresses sometimes create problems instead of alleviating them.
Other books in the Changes series include Changes Book 1: Rights, Resources, and Weather and Changes Book 2: Progress, Reactions, and History. Each book contains detailed lesson plans, reproducible activity sheets, and assessment tools.
This curriculum unit makes use of the following great children's literature books:
