|Lesson Title||Capturing Change|
|Unit Compelling Question||How is everyone unique?|
We often hear stories from older generations about what their childhood was like. They might tell us about the clothes they wore, the games they played, and the food they ate. As younger generations hear stories they often laugh or simply smirk at the fact that it is much different than their own childhood. Each student has their own unique personality, but the environment and world around them highly affects them. Schools that were once one room school houses are now seen to be multiple story high buildings. Kids were required to wear a certain outfit to attend school, and now they just simply have to follow a dress code. School lunches and snacks were mich different than what kids are experiencing. What kids did for fun and for hobbies are now very different. Time has changed in America, and has new generations have come up things are starting to evolve and enhance.

|Lesson Supporting Question||How are we different than people long ago?|
Students will bring in and look at photo of families and see what their photo is saying about their lives (age, clothing, background, etc.). We will compare their photos to photos of children long ago. We will reflect on how our stories are different than students long ago and why our stories are so different or the same.
