Calling all 4th Grade Social Studies Teachers!
INFOhio has lots of great tools to support blended learning in the 4th grade social studies classroom! Take this content statement from Ohio's Grade 4 Social Studies Standards for example: The order of significant events in Ohio and the United States can be shown on a timeline. Use World Book Timelines to meet this standard.
Before students start their timelines, though, assign different groups of students to read different social studies texts from INFOhio's Storia 4th Grade Collection. Non-fiction social studies eBooks in this collection include:
- I Am #1: Sacagawea
- The Declaration of Independence (Cornerstones of Freedom. Third Series)
- U.S. People and Places: Native Americans
- U.S. People and Places: U.S. Regions
- Immigration (Cornerstones of Freedom. Third Series)
Don't have a teacher access code for Storia yet? It's free and easy for Ohio 4th grade teachers to get an account. Just complete the form here. Once you've got your access code, you can create accounts for all 4th graders in your school and start assigning eBooks.
Decide whether you want to compare continents, countries, or states and then choose those you want to compare to learn key facts about each.
