I am a third grade teacher at Valle Vista School within the Mt. Pleasant Elementary School District in San Jose, California. Our school is nicely balanced with a variety of language groups and ethnicities. Even though I teach all subjects, I absolutely love teaching Social Studies the most! I try to make history come alive by telling the students stories about our history instead of having them read from the text. I feel they gain so much more because they are actually interested in learning. I would love to have a resource that complements what I teach my students and re-enforces what they have learned. I have found these seven engaging videos cover all the basics of U.S. government. They are in a format that is involving, informative and easy to follow! Topics are introduced in short, manageable segments, giving students an easy-to-digest overview of America's political landscape. Targets standards in these areas: values/principles of democracy, structure & function of U.S. government, major documents in U.S. history , and how government bodies make decisions. This is a great opportunity to make learning fun. Whenever we are able to make learning fun, the students are the winners. Please help fund this worthwhile project. Thank you!
