    Social studies

    We use trade books to teach the different regions. For instance, Sarah Morton's Day, Samuel Easton's Day and Tapanum's Day are great for teaching New England in the time of the Pilgrims and about the Native Americans that lived at that time. We also do a study of Lewis and Clark later in the year, and at that time, we tie in the states they passed through, the rivers that were important and the students research some of the Native American tribes they encountered. We also do state research using nonfiction materials and the internet, and the children create a PowerPoint slide show about their state. If you work with the librarian in your school, he/she probably can direct you to excellent books that you could use to help your study. Good luck!
