Product Description

•Use the picture book Weslandia by Paul Fleischman to introduce middle school social studies.

•Beginning with a class discussion, review the five big areas of study for social studies:

•History – learning about the past

•Economy – learning about things related to money

•Government – who is in charge?

•Culture – what makes our lives unique? Clothes, food, entertainment, religion, etc.

•Geography – learning about the land, including map skills

•Next read or listen to the book.

•I have purchased this book online, found copies at the local library, or just watched this video from youtube

•Each student should take notes while the book is being read. Try to find examples of each of the big areas from this story. Use the attached note sheet, or just have kids jot down notes on their desktop with a dry erase marker.

•After reading, move into a table or small group discussion to help students complete their lists.

•End with a large group (whole class) discussion to share the answers
