You're preparing to teach 5th grade social studies unit on Jamestown and its first inhabitants. In this unit, you will introduce the concept of shelter of both the Native Americans who occupied the area and that of Jamestown's first settlers. You realize that this is an important idea that will need to be fully developed before the students begin the text sets you plan to use.
What graphic organizer or vocabulary development technique would you use to teach the concept of "shelter?" Describe your instruction and tell why your technique would be effective in giving students a deeper understanding of this concept before you teach the unit.
