Make learning about the local, state and federal government more fun with a sprinkle of fairy dust! This unit kicks off with a read-aloud (or guided reading) story written at the 3.2 reading level called "Jenny and the Government Fairy". Start out with four activity sheets that go with the story, and match language arts Common Core Standards for 3rd grade. Then move on to teaching handouts, and activities (including quizzes) that teach students about federal, state and local government! $
Who is the Government Fairy and What is She Doing here?
Fun, edible way to teach landforms. (SS1G3 The student will locate major topographical features of the earth’s surface. c. Identify and describe landforms, including mountains, deserts, vall eys, plains, plateaus, and coasts.)
(Freebie}This is a short MP3 song that tells students what the past and present is and then you show them pictures and have them tell you "past" or "present" We also have pictures that are a free download. #MP3 song #social studies #TPT #teacherspayteachers #education #teaching
Our first unit in Social Studies focused on Communities. We created triaramas showing characteristics of a rural, suburban, and urban community. Then in the last section they made a tree map about the three different communities.
This landform foldable gives students a great visual of how much taller or shorter landforms compare to each other. On the opposite side of the colored landform the students can write what they know about each landform. My Students loved this activity!!!
