5th Grade Social Studies
Our focus is on Colonial America. As much as possible, we integrate the history and language arts curricula. Our big project is the Colonial Roadshow, when students research an aspect of life in the colonies, create a slide presentations, and make an artifact.
- How do we know what really happened?
- What do primary sources tell us about life at that time?
- Who is telling the story?
- What stories are (or are not) told?
