Here are a few pictures of a project some of the Gr.7-9 students completed recently. They researched a few different forts in Canada and created a model of what they might of looked like. #socialstudies#canada#christianeducation
When you get to combine your favorite Thanksgiving things- social studies and the Macy's day parade! It was a great day to teach about road maps and the history of why the parade has been rolling for 92 years!
I love Breakouts and Escape Rooms in the classroom.
They can be a great activity before a long break that can also be productive and engaging learning tool. All my students solved the riddles and puzzles in order to unlock 4 locks and in the meantime learned teamwork and had fun!

Social studies is most commonly known as the name of a course or set of courses taught in primary and secondary schools or elementary, middle, and secondary schools, but may also refer to the study of aspects of human society at certain post-secondary and tertiary schools around the globe. Many such courses are interdisciplinary and draw upon various fields, including sociology but also political science, history, economics, religious studies, geography, psychology, anthropology, and civics. At the elementary school level, social studies generally focuses first on the local community and family. By middle and high school, the social studies curriculum becomes more discipline-based and content-specific. #Socialstudies#Kuwait#history#project#essay#homework#exam#sstckw
History fact of the day: Did you know on this day in 1907 Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory collectively enter the United States as Oklahoma, the 46th state?
Oklahoma, with a name derived from the Choctaw Indian words okla, meaning “people,” and humma, meaning “red,” has a history of human occupation dating back 15,000 years. The United States acquired Oklahoma from France in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase.
Following the War of 1812, the U.S. government decided to remove Native American groups from the settled eastern lands of the United States and move them west to the unsettled lands of Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska. In 1828, Congress reserved Oklahoma for Native Americans and in 1834 formally ceded it to five southeastern tribes as Indian Territory. Many Cherokees refused to abandon their homes east of the Mississippi, and so the U.S. Army moved them west in a forced march known as the “Trail of Tears.” *
During the American Civil War, most tribes in Indian Territory supported the South. With the defeat of the Confederacy in 1865, the territory was placed under U.S. military rule. White cattlemen and settlers began to covet the virgin ranges of Oklahoma, and after the arrival of the railroad in the 1870s, illegal white incursion into Indian Territory flourished. Most of these “Boomers” were expelled, but pressure continued until the federal government agreed in 1889 to open two million acres in central Oklahoma for white settlement. At noon on April 22, 1889, a pistol shot signaled the opening of the new land, and tens of thousands of people rushed to stake claims. Those who had already made illegal entry to beat the starting gun were called “Sooners,” hence Oklahoma’s state nickname. In 1907, Congress decided to admit Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory into the Union as a single state, with all Indians in the state becoming U.S. citizens.
World History I is a course concerning the nations and peoples of the world. Beginning with an introduction into history, geography, and lightly covering anthropology, our tutors give you a framework for understanding the course as a whole. Most World History I courses begin with the four primary ancient civilizations (Mesopotamia, Egypt, Indus River Valley and, China) and end around the beginning of the European Renaissance. Our tutors give students an overview of World History I and encourage them to think critically about the development of history as it relates to our present-day cultures and situations. Think of this course as the greatest epic ever written — one long story about the development, impact, and innovations of humans! #history#socialstudies#kuwait#tutor#tutoring#exam#essay#project#sstckw
Succumbed to being a tourist... a resident tourist? Or an expat who tours locally? .
Whatever the label is, it does not matter. What truly does matter is that, no one can deny these beautiful nature-made rocks! And take note, they are historical too.
The friends did a great job doing centers about the Far North Inuit people for their Native American studies. They built igloos and inukshuks, learned about the arctic tundra, and studied new words! They even got to hold a real walrus tusk! It was SNOW much fun! ❄️ ☃️ #allin4pcs#socialstudies
It was Bureaucracy of Pizza day in AP Gov! 🍕🏛
Full disclosure: I did not come up with the idea for this activity.
The bureaucracy can be mind-numbingly boring to teach. This activity is an awesome way to get students to understand how much the government regulates (like every part of the pizza-making/delivery process) as well as the plethora of federal departments and agencies that provide regulation and oversight. This year students clicked on links embedded in images on a Google Slide to investigate their pizza toppings and then filled out their responses on a Google Form. Of course students enjoyed some delicious @costco pizza while completing the activity!
