If you are new to teaching middle school Social Studies, then this bundle is going to provide you with what I didn’t have when I first started teaching…RESOURCES!!
The difference between this bundle and my MEGA bundle is that this one doesn't include ALL 63 of my historic painting recreations.
I have been teaching middle school Social Studies for going on 19 years now, and when I first started, I was given a textbook and a classroom roster - that was it! My store name, Surviving Social Studies, came about because I truly felt like I was in survival mode every day for that first year. I was usually just one step ahead of the kids. I didn't have any resources to fall back on and spent my nights, weekends, and vacations in my classroom just trying to stay ahead of the students.
Let me help lessen your stress so you can have more time for yourself both in and out of the classroom. What I’ve put together in this bundle are over 200 resources from my TpT store to supplement your Social Studies curriculum. Included in these 200+ resources are my 11 U.S. History Word Walls, 100+ Geography resources, 50 U.S. History resources, 5 American Revolution Painting Recreations, and a variety of others you can see in my store. All of these resources are for you to have in your teacher toolbox so you don’t have to spend every minute of your nights, weekends, and vacations trying to come up with something for your kids to do.
HERE’S JUST A HANDFUL OF THE RESOURCES YOU’LL FIND IN EACH FOLDER:

Have a great year!!
