United States Research Project

Hello everyone!  Welcome to my brand spankin' new teacher blog.  I've wanted to start a blog for some time and just never really knew where to start (or couldn't get myself to start).  I'll be sharing ideas that I've used in my eleven years of teaching elementary school, as well as new ideas I want to try and worksheets and other activities I've created!

Today, I wanted to share one of the research projects I organized for my third grade dual-language students a few years ago.  When I taught dual-language, I taught the English portion, primarily math and language arts.  While the students didn't have social studies with me, I was still required as a part of the program to provide my kiddos with a research center.  In order to keep it fairly well organized, I gave the students a different topic to research each six weeks.  I chose the 50 states for this project, because I have found over the years that my students (both dual-language AND regular program) have a really hard time understanding where in the world they are.  They have difficulty distinguishing between cities and states and countries and I wanted to hone in on that.
