Social Studies is taught through integration with Literacy. In 5th grade our focus is U.S. History!
Literacy and Social Studies are integrated through simulations, Project Based Learning (PBLs), real - world experiences, seminars, and research projects!
Students have numerous opportunities to delve deep into the world of history while simultaneously having to tap in to the Literacy skills they have learned.
This is where history comes alive!
What is Project Based Learning?
Project Based Learning is a way of teaching that gives students an avenue to gain knowledge and skills by working to investigate and respond to a question, a problem, or a challenge. It challenges their thinking and brings it to an all new deeper level. PBLs give students the opportunity to think creatively and critically and enhance their entire learning experience!
HERE is a wonderful article about the benefits of PBLs on your student's brain!
