Collector: Ann V.

The 16 lessons in Module 4, Unit 3, ask fifth-graders to research the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. They analyze informational texts, primary source documents, and speeches to gather background information on how the United States responds to disasters in the Western Hemisphere through multinational organizations like the Red Cross. Young scholars develop an opinion speech about how to prioritize aid following a hypothetical hurricane in Mexico.
