Social Studies Projects

We have been studying histories of the world and world geography in Social Studies. We talked about artifacts and their role in studying past cultures. We learned the difference between relief maps and physical maps. We made artifacts and relief maps out of clay, then drew physical maps of our relief maps. The kids have each chosen a country to study and do research on. They are also drawing maps of their country, cooking a dish from their country, and doing an oral report for the family. I was really surprised with how excited they all are to do this project. In addition to everything else, Madison is also doing a canvas painting of her country, Brazil. I can't wait to see their finished projects, especially the food :).

All of this is very cool. I can't wait to see what they come up with in choosing their own country.
