Who’s ready for some football with a twist of social studies?? Students will actively engage in practice with map skills while they scoot to stations featuring 8 different football teams! Students will have the opportunity to collaborate on key map skills such as using map scale, relative location, directions, state identification, etc. Includes 8 different color team scenario cards, a colored team map, a student recording sheet, and a complete answer key!
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!
