THIS PROJECT LEARNING COMBO PACK INCLUDES OUR INDIVIDUAL UNITS ON HISTORY SKILLS, ARTIFACTS, AND NATIVE AMERICANS. BE CAREFUL NOT TO DUPLICATE YOUR PURCHASE
PROJECT LEARNING contains eight descriptions of Project Centered Learning activities that can be used throughout the year to engage your students and reinforce & review the basic skills of social studies. Students need skills to read and analyze reference sites on history, articles on historic events & peoples and the importance of artifacts in understanding history.
The bulk of the activities have students working in groups of (2-4) people. The students will be using a variety of skills in hands on, high interest, fun activities. The activities challenge each student to function in a group setting, problem solve, use their right brain and complete tasks for which they are individually responsible.
Each PROJECT stands alone and takes a maximum of 3-4 days depending on the activity. You may pick & choose or use all of them. You can also spread the projects out throughout the school year when you consider where each Project is more pertinent.
One last piece of information. I have used these projects throughout the year, & each provides a way to make social studies more fun and rigorous! They also allow the students to get to know each other, build relationships and work as a team to complete academic challenges.
Project Learning is divided into three sections. The first section contains activities based on four basic skills used in the study of social studies & history. The second introduces artifacts and allows students to work with & understand the importance of artifacts in social studies and history. The third introduces students to the impact of Native American Indians on our country including the identification of locations & the Native American’s impact on the games we play. The projects should be used to present hands-on activities to reinforce skills & incorporate new ways to learn about old things!
MAKE SOCIAL STUDIES FUN & CHALLENGING and THE BATTLE IS WON!!
