Go social studies go

I found this site several years ago, and when I did, it looked completely different.  As a matter-of-fact, when I checked it out again this week, I was astounded ~ it had changed completely.  I love, love, love that this site keeps evolving and getting better.

Go, Social Studies, Go is definitely a big contender in the world of Social Studies and American History for Middle and High School Students!  Why wouldn’t it be?  There are maps, primary sources and documents,  interactives, student-friendly reading passage and short nonfiction pieces,  Check it out! Go, Social Studies, Go  is an undiscovered huge piece of WOW that should be celebrated & shared!

It has been subdivided into three major areas, (U.S. History, Ancient History, & World History)  and and we primary school teachers will mostly be interested in the first section.  Here in America, it tends to be a curricular focus to study American History in 5th – 6th grade.  If you click on the first section, you will be amazed with the plethora of categories that appear!  As of today, there are over 50 brilliantly chronicled categories of American History!  I’ll list just a few of them, so please explore the full site for all of the amazing resources in every category you can imagine:

  • Jamestown
  • Salem Witch Trials
  • Colonial America
