Around the World Classrooms
I teach in a collaborative classroom. I am a teacher of the behavioral disordered students, but I am teaching one segment daily (social studies & science) in a reg. ed. 4th grade class.
Idea — We decorated our 4th grade hall for Thanksgiving like Plymouth; the early settlers.
For “Christmas around the World” we kept up our decorations.
Each teacher took a country i.e. France, Great Britain, etc., and decorated their door and section for a particular country. We designated a particular time of day for Social Studies and changed classes. Each teacher only had to learn about one country, but the students got to learn about six countries. The students loved the change!!
