Time to link up with Jivey! :)
Well, I have a TON of American History, World History, Biographies and Historical Fiction books in my library-free for the kids to pick from! (This group really likes biographies-they've been going through them like crazy!) (Plus, I love history as well-I just can't resist! ;)
Our wonderful, awesome, amazing literacy series (can you sense the sarcasm?) alternates every other unit (2 themes per unit) with a Social Studies one (the other one is Science-those are way more cool and interesting!).
American Journeys (all about immigration and the American Dream)
However, I like to throw in a Scholastic News now and again, as well as an article about a topic we're studying (see yesterday's post for information!)
Right now, we are working on an Explorer project-where each student picked an explorer and is researching them. They'll have to create a powerpoint to go along with it-I think they like that part the most!
