Shermerville Then, Northbrook Now

We have been learning about citizens and communities in social studies. We learned about how things have changed over the past hundred years. Remember the books we have read,  the discussions we have had, and our field trip to the Northbrook Historical Society.  Think about all the different ways that life today is different from life 100 years ago. Then, think about how you can use the Seesaw tools to show what you have learned! 1. Add the activity to your journal.  2. Your job is to show what you have learned about how life today is different from life 100 years ago.  Choose the Seesaw tool that will best help you show many ways that Shermerville (then) and Northbrook (now) are alike and different.  You might want to use drawings, labels, a caption, your voice, a photo of a venn diagram, or a couple of different tools. 3. Click the green check to add your work to your journal!

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Students learned about citizens and communities during social studies. They read a book about how life has changed in the past 100 years, and we went on a field trip to our city's Historical Society. This activity is a way to assess if students can compare and contrast life now and life 100 years ago.
