The Primary Source December Edition

Olympics

6th

Sixth graders are in the middle of their Olympic Games which are based on the original games of the ancients.  Following the Olympics we'll be finishing up ancient Greece and Alexander the Great.  These topics along with the Persian Empire should take us right up to Christmas break.

Christmas Around the World!  The preparation for our annual Christmas celebration will take quite a bit of time from our class during the first week of December.  Hopefully things go well and we'll be able to spend a little time leading up to our Christmas break going over Geography and reviewing some of the concepts that the students previously learned.   We won't have much time for new content this month but it's always nice to reinforce previous skills and information.

Welcome!

This website is used as a way for students to utilize the internet as a learning tool.  There are so many ways that Social Studies can be fun and interesting when presented in the right way and I believe this modern technology is the perfect way for all students to learn.  This site will consist of:

  • Interesting and helpful Social Studies sites of all kinds
  • Documents to download for projects
  • Media such as movies, pictures, and songs to reinforce people, places, and events
  • Text book information and chapters
  • Maps and files of electronic maps for free mapping software
  • Links to free software and safe downloads to assist with learning
  • Economics tools and documents
  • Useless tidbits of information that middle schoolers love
  • Anything else I come across that I feel will help the kids make connections and spark their interest.

 

 

I won't ever get completely done with updating this site so check back often to see what has changed and what's new!
