Snow Day Make Up Assignment for Saturday, April 12.  
This is due by Wednesday, April 16th.
Each student will complete six footprints 
(the footprints will go home Friday, April 11) 
with an event that happened in their state fair state.  
Each footprint is labeled with a time period in which the event took place.  
They will need to utilize the internet to find an important event from each time period.

Chapt. 7 Social Studies Vocabulary Games
Try and find some time to take a look at some of these games 
during spring break for the new vocabulary words.  


Try the following links to some great 
Social Studies Interactive Websites:

Preamble to the Constitution
  • We will begin social studies again on Monday, March 10th. 
  • One of my favorite activities is to have the students memorize the Preamble to the Constitution. 
  • I have posted the School House Rock video with the Preamble song above. 
  • You can sing it or recite it for a test grade by March 19th.
  • The Preamble begins with "We the people" - this starts the song and will be what you are tested on. 
  • We will be discussing what the words of the Preamble mean in the life of an American citizen during the social studies chapter titled: The Birth of a New Nation.
If you don't study, this is what you might look like as you try to recite the Preamble for the test on March 19th.  Don't look like this as you try to recite the Preamble!  STUDY!!!!!!!
