Social Studies Projects

The last few weeks we have been working together in groups to learn about the regions of the United States. First, each student in our class and Mrs. Towsen's class and our class became an expert on one state. We learned about the climate, landforms, industries, products, resources, history, and special historical events of our state.

Next we got together with kids from both classes, and we formed 5 regions groups to learn about the various regions of the United States. We took the information we learned about our states, and we synthesized it and summarized it to tell what things the region had in common. We planned out what we were going to do each day, and we all worked very hard and even helped each other out to make sure that every one of our tasks got finished.

We're very excited to be moving on to the final phase of this process: our projects. We are going to be making websites, posters, movies, games, and slideshows to teach other and the world about the five unique regions of the United States. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates and the chance to see our amazing finished projects!
