S.S.I: Social Studies Investigations

My students need multiple social studies activities kits and a review game system to learn about social studies every day.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

It has been my experience that social studies is often overlooked so that there is more time to focus on math and reading. I want to change that in my classroom. I want to provide my fifth grade students with the opportunity to investigate social studies, in particular U.S. History and geography, every single day.

My school is considered to have moderate poverty. In the past few years, we have gone from 30% of students receiving free or reduced lunch to well over 50% of students receiving free or reduced lunch. Budgets all over are being affected by the economy. Our school is no different. We have no funding for much needed teaching materials for social studies.

I am asking for various social studies kits for students. These kits include: We the People U.S. History Series, Our Government Photo Book Series, Mapping Teaching Center, Presidents Teaching Center, Native Americans Teaching Center, Pilgrims Teaching Center, U.S. Symbols Teaching Center, Social Studies Independent Project Center, Travel Math Problem Solving Kit. I am also asking for an Eggspert Classroom Game System and AC adaptor so that my students can play review games in a fun way. I believe that these items will provide my students with the knowledge that they need to be informed about the world around them and foster desire to learn more about and be involved in their country's government.

Your help will ensure that my students will learn about the United States, its history, and its important figures. You will truly be molding the next generations of leaders for our country with your donation. Without support from donors like you, my children will be like many other students in the U.S. who are focused on math and science but have no clue about the wonderful country that they live in!
