Create your own country project, an application based on the skills needed for Social Studies. Maps, people, places, symbols, and other geographical features are needed for students to use critical thinking and a chance for creative students to excel. This is heavy on the 6 + 1 trait writing process and appeals to the Listening and Speaking standards for Common Core. You can do individual or group work, as a culmination performance assessment for a geography unit in 4th grade. You can also edit it to be about a "state" intead of "country," but it hits the global citizenship idea. Research can be a part of this unit.
