PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There are 132 social studies writing prompts included in this pack! They focus on Georgia fourth grade standards but can be used for ANY grade teaching the Age of Exploration through Pre-Civil War.
*PLEASE* download the preview to see the table of contents and what is included. This product is paving the way for a successfully Social Studies integrated writing block!

Each writing prompt covers one specific element and is taken directly from every fourth grade social studies standard in Georgia. The standard is conveniently located in the upper-left corner as well. At the end, there is a blank page for writers who may need additional space!

I hope that you enjoy this product as much as I have in my own classroom. With all of the standards that we must teach, I have a difficult time fitting in daily writing. This product is the solution to that problem and is an easy, “print-and-go” way to integrate social studies into writing instruction or vice versa. I sincerely hope that this product will make your life as a social studies teacher easier, while helping your students to think more critically about history and the important events that have shaped our nation’s history.
