This unit was created by Ms. Kristen Paino. The unit was done her second grade classroom during the 2010-2011 school year, over a five month period.
For this project, the students explored attributes of the community in which they live and presented their learning to two other second grade classes, one in a suburban community and one in a rural community. The students applied 21st century skills across social studies content and used various forms of technology to produce, publish, interact and collaborate with others.
