Social Studies

  • http://www.timeforkids.com - This fantastic website is similar to the actual magazine, but includes much more information. It has news polls taken by children, Kidscoops (interviews with celebrities), games, sports, entertainment new s, and homework helpers.
  • http://bensguide.gpo.gov/ - This is one of the best websites that I have found that relates to relevant social studies topics. It is separated by grade level and offers a wide variety of topics about our country's history and the US government. Very child friendly! This is one of my favorites!

Recently, a student doing research for a project on the US Government found her way to my website. Luckily, she was able to learn from the websites I have linked here.  She and her teacher emailed me because she wanted to share a website she had found useful.   So, here it is...Enjoy!         http://www.congressforkids.net/index.htm - This website, Congress for Kids, is a great introduction to our federal government. Visitors can learn about The Constitution, citizenship, the branches of government, etc. You can even take some quick quizzes to see how much you have learned. It's a new favorite!   I'm sending a special thank you to Sarah and her teacher Ms. Conner in Colorado Springs!
