Original: "Students create a Pilgrim book to discuss what they think it would be like to be in the shoes of the Pilgrims." **Great use of empathy in history, but I would modify this to have students put themselves in the shoes of the Natives instead.
classroom door ideas social studies. This is cool, but I just got a really cool idea. Start with a blank outline of the US, and as you progress through history, add shapes to represent how much land we control at that time. I LIKE!
