Social studies is integrated into all of our English classes as much as possible to give the students a more worldly view. Our first big research project is a persuasive essay and promotional/tourism project about a country. We often read stories about children in other countries, especially in our social issues unit and world war 2 history unit. In our dedicated social studies class, we learn about other cultures and some geography to help learn how to use a map and where different countries around the world are located.
Here are some remarkable tourism projects about different countries that students have created in our social studies class.
