Making learning fun and interactive is an outstanding way to excite your social studies students. While the goal of this activity is to create excitement and to spark interest in further study, they are also standards based. This activity encourages creativity, intelligent reflection, and decision making that will help you take an active approach to teaching while inspiring your students to make their own explorations of history, writing and reading.
