Social Studies Project

Glanton-Hindsman Elementary 2nd Grade

Who

Students will research Georgia's first people. May include one or more of the following:

Creek Indians, Cherokee Indians, Tomochichi, Sequoyah, Mary Musgrove, James Oglethorpe

What

Students may make the following:

model, poster, poem, song, Prezi, Powerpoint, movie, digital book, game, infographic, narrated slideshow, abc book, collage, padlet, quiz, study guide, flyer, or anything else approved by his/her teacher. * This flyer was created at smore.com (free web tool).

When

Students should be prepared to present their projects by Monday, March 16th.

Where

Students will continue researching famous Georgians all next week at school. Students using a digital format may work on this project during that time, but some projects such as models and posters will need to be made at home. Regardless of the format, we encourage your involvement, and hope you will assist your child as needed to make this a successful and fun learning experience!

Why

Project Based Learning (PBL) allows students to show what they know while using these 21st century skills.

  • personal and social responsibility
  • planning, critical thinking, reasoning, and creativity
  • strong communication skills, both for interpersonal and presentation needs
  • cross-cultural understanding
  • visualizing and decision making
  • knowing how and when to use technology and choosing the most appropriate tool for the task
