PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a PowerPoint overview or introduction of the 5 branches of social studies: history, geography, government, economics, and culture. I have used this at the beginning of the year to explain to students what social studies is, what they will be studying, and why it is important.

It includes a brainstorming activity at the beginning for you to assess students' prior knowledge on this topic.

The PowerPoint is completely editable and includes images on each slide to make it more visually appealing.

Please note that this is NOT the 5 Themes of Geography. It is 5 general branches of social studies: history, geography, government, economics, and culture.

I have used this PowerPoint with 6th grade Social Studies, but it could be used for grades 4-8.

I hope you find this useful! Happy teaching!
