Introducing Dive into Social Studies Students
This week I want to shine the student spotlight on my Dive into Social Studies students. These second and third graders learned about geography and democracy during first semester. In our geography unit, students made maps with the continents and oceans, learned about countries, states, and communities, and created maps of their bedrooms complete with a compass rose and map key. In our democracy unit, they learned about citizens, rights and responsibilities, the checks and balances in the three branches of government, important American symbols, and the Bill of Rights.
I love working with these young students and exploring important social studies curriculum in a fun, interactive way! The students created some great work, and I want to share a few of my favorites here.
Thank you for taking the time to read my newsletter and for supporting the work of my students.
