The unit has 15 modules in it, each addressing fourth grade standards. These standards can be viewed in the right column on each module page, in the form of our leaning intentions.
World's Fair 2.0 explicitly lays out the steps for student success in each part of the project before providing guidelines and instruction. Students are able to integrate all parts of the curricula as they address the learning intentions in a much more interesting method.
Each module has an online component, as well. I have linked reading material for students to use as they research varying aspects of this interesting - and often controversial - event in our state's history. Additionally, students are asked to make an online submission as a part of each lesson, either as individuals or as a team.
Offline, they will perform science experiments and do a great deal of writing. The unit is broad-reaching and requires many of the skills for which we have striven throughout the year. While we are not going to hit every aspect of this deep thinking unit, this year, I foresee it as being a hit when fully implemented in the spring of 2016.
I have linked the project homepage to our Missouri History page as well as my page for teachers - Teacher Collaboration.
