Super Social Studies Site

It’s time for the Wednesday Website suggestion!! For two years, I was the Technology Specialist at a school in Georgia. During that time, I amassed a large collection of websites that I use with my students. If you want to search through some of them, you can check out my IKeepBookmarks site. Or, you can check back here each week for the Wednesday Website suggestion.

Last week, we looked at Science Kids, which is an all inclusive website forsocialstudiesforkids lots of science topics.  This week, we’re going to look at Social Studies for Kids, a great website for lots of different Social Studies topics including history topics, world religions and holidays and geography.  The write ups are very kid friendly and give just enough information on a topic for a 2nd – 5th grader to get what they need, without overwhelming them.

This was one of my favorite websites when I was doing Internet Scavenger Hunts with my students.  There is a lot of good information on Native Americans, US History and World Religions & Holidays.  I used it a lot this year to help ME and my students understand Muslim Holidays!

Hope you enjoyed this Wednesday’s Website suggestion – check back each Wednesday for a new Wednesday's Website suggestion. Click HERE for previous Wednesday Website suggestions.
