This project covers the geography, history, and cultural aspects of the 4th grade social studies standards. To evaluate students without testing, there are many activities that students can do for credit. There is a point system for grading and activities including research, art, technology, and family field trips. I have included a letter to the teacher on how to make this a fun and educational culmination of the unit, complete with instructions for a contest. I used this with my 4th graders and had amazing success in motivation and interest.
