Engage Students in Social Studies with Technology!

Use these examples of projects created by students to inspire technology integration in your elementary social studies program.

These digital projects were created by elementary students using Wixie.


Trading Cards

Students research a person from history, or a character in a book they are reading, and summarize their findings in the form of a trading card. Turn it into a card game by assigning points and powers and developing rules for playing cards against each other.


Historical Newsletter

To help students better understand the perspectives of those in different times and cultures, have them develop newsletters that recall and retell historic events.


How to Guides

Practice informational writing with a real world twist, by asking students to create guides to help others succeed during the Gold Rush, use various map features, travel the Silk Route, and more.


Journey Journals

Students connect with the past as they write a first-person account of events in history.


Debates

Students can create digital debates to demonstrate understanding of the views held by each side of an issue.
