Teaching 4th Grade Social Studies

Visit Colonial America through this fantastic virtual field trip!

Candadian History Book 1 Chapter 1 This really helped my students understand: glaciers, raising sea levels, and the land bridge theory.

Land Bridge Lesson Plan - Layers of Learning

This is one of my favorite units! It motivates students to want to learn about the Native Americans of North America (Eastern Woodlands, Great Plains, Southwest, Northwest Coast, Southeast). For each region, there is a 2-page informational text and comprehension questions. In addition, create a Native America name, Picture Writing, Project, Study chart, Map of the regions, Dream Catcher project and writing, Totem Pole Craft and writing, rain dance instructions, acrostic poem, quiz and rubrics.

A great addition to the social studies classroom, this book includes poems about famous explorers. Figurative language in this book includes similes and metaphors.
