Integrating my two favorite things, language arts and social studies: Designate a color/style of pushpin for each student. Every time a student reads about a specific place, landmark, etc., they record it with their pushpin on the map. Closer to the end of the year, have each student choose one of their favorite recorded locations and do a research project about said location.
Freebie Friday!!!
