Math, reading, writing, science, social studies. How do you fit it all in? And, as I write this, we are living in a global pandemic where so many teachers are not even teaching students every single day in the classroom. I have seen this play out over the last 15 years in education…there are new initiatives and a greater emphasis on ELA and math and social studies/science are shoved to the sidelines. I have seen this SO MANY TIMES.
Worst part? I LOVE teaching social studies. When I taught fourth grade in New York, our emphasis was on state history. When I taught third grade, the main emphasis was on world culture and communities. I absolutely loved this, and I think it’s because I was always learning about new places, new cultures, and new traditions.
I decided to help you out here…and I am giving you a FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE social studies resource try out. There are over 15 of these units, but I want the start to your year to be easy, so try one of these units out!!
