30 History/Social Studies Learning Creatives

This learning idea is based off of Apple’s 30 Creative Activities for Kids (Please see also post 10 Minute Tryouts) and 30 Time-Saving Tips for Teachers. It has the focus of History/Social Studies content activities wrapped around a social studies standard or skill.

It was my original goal to try and create one example for each of the 30. If you’ve tried anything similar to one or more of the 30, could you tell us what you did and how it worked in your classroom or with social studies professional learning? Just reply below or reply to the post 10 Minute Tryouts. Let’s get those collaborative Social Studies juices flowing!

This is so great! Social Studies teachers everywhere will love this resource... and educators of other subject areas can easily follow your lead. What a superior example of using creativity to teach content!

Thank you JJ - a remix is always fun! Other curricular areas could do the same. Often teachers want to know how an activity will relate their specific content.

Absolutely Linda! English-History integrated classes could really come up with some super projects!
