Hi fellow teachers,
I just received my notification in the mail about the upcoming US census, so I thought I'd make a worksheet that explains in simple terms what a census is and why it's important. Well, one idea led to another, and I ended up with a 3-page cross-curricular activity (ESL, Social Studies/Civics, Math) that you could probably spend an entire class period doing. :)
2010 Census (with free 3-page activity packet) - Learn English Communicatively - WordSpark
(Click on the link at the top of the post that says "2010 Census Activity.pdf" to download the activity)
I wanted to share it with everyone and I hope it's useful!
