Students will distinguish between first and secondhand accounts as they explore and discuss 5 different perspectives surrounding the events occurring on September 11th (9/11). Written with regard to “kid friendly” understanding and sensitivity of the topic, students will collaborate in rich discussions as they participate in this group scoot activity. They will use inferencing skills and text evidence to determine from which point of view each account is written. The integration of both Language Arts skills and social studies content provides a great way to raise awareness of this important event in our nation’s history while at the same time giving practice in several Common Core standard areas.

I currently teach an integrated 4th grade Language Arts and Social Studies class. Although I've been teaching for 20 years, this is only my second year with an integrated curriculum. I love it! I've traded both my social studies text and reading series books for rich literature, primary documents, hands on games & activities, reader's theaters, and close readings to meet and extend all of my language arts standards and social studies content. This connected approach to learning makes so much more sense to both my students and me! It is what has driven me to create so many of my own materials and resources. My hope is that it can benefit other teachers who are attempting this integrated way of teaching!
