Blendspace

Holiday Customs and Traditions

A Lesson in Social Studies

I love using various kinds of tools of technology when creating lessons for my students or teachers on my team. Blendspace (formerly called Edcanvas) is a tool that can be used to share content with teachers and students and shared via Twitter, Pinterest, email or Facebook. This week, we are learning about various holiday customs and traditions in social studies. I plan the unit for my team so I created a Blendspace lesson to share with my team for Friday's lesson. The students will be making a flip book on Friday of the four customs learned. This is just one way Blendspace can be utilized in the classsroom. Students can also create their own Blendspace in various subjects like Language Arts for sequencing, math for problem solving, etc. The opportunities are limitless.
