Looking for Gold - The Westward Expansion
My students need hands on learning activities and literature other than text books to learn about the history of our country and state.
Learning solely from a text book is never fun. For my students, hands-on materials and colorful picture books are the only way to go.
My students are at their best when they are learning and practicing their skills in fun and interactive ways.
I work with a great group of fourth grade students. They are little sponges waiting for me to disseminate information in a way that will capture their attention. More than half of my students are learning English as a second language and benefit from hands-on learning experiences.
I am asking for your help with the purchase of various Westward Expansion activities and picture books. Social Studies textbooks are often too difficult, and do not have enough background information. Providing these items for my students will give them the opportunity for hands-on learning. They will be able to read about and later create a model showing the trails the pioneers traveled.
Kids do not want to read from textbooks that are not engaging.
They want books that are interesting and hands on activities that will excite them about the topics we are studying. These activities will do just that, they will excite my students to learn about our country's history.
