Student Teaching in 5th grade....HELP

Hi! Today was my 3rd day student teaching in 5th grade. I am absolutely loving it so far. As part of my university requirements, I will have to solo teach for 3-5 weeks on a particular unit. I really want to do either Native Americans or the Age of Exploration and then integrate it into my literacy instruction. But I don't even know where to begin. How do I know what my first lesson should be? Both units are so broad- how do I even begin? I'm feeling so un-creative because I have no idea where to start.

Thanks for any and all help!

The first thing I would do is talk to your cooperating teacher. Depending on you take on the 3-5 solo weeks, you won't know what topic they are getting ready to cover. Once you get the okay from her with the pacing and such, you should then look at the standards to help you make it not so broad and to help you narrow it down. Once you do that, I think it will get a little easier and we can help you more.
