There are so many great things out there for social studies and I would love for my students to reach out to another classroom around the world. It would also be neat to collaborate with our fellow sixth grade social studies class downstairs. We need to have our students share ideas and opinons with each other since we are usually reading the same novels.
Classroom: Downstairs Sixth Grade
Objective: Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the political aspects of culture and how they relate to the novel, "Hunger Games" by participating in an on-line discussion on Wallwisher.
Details: In some on my mixed Cesit classes, the students were discussing aspects of the books while working on scrapbook projects. I thought the students would love discussing the book and the characters with our classroom partners downstairs. We would use the Wallwisher during next year's unit on political influences on society.
