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.

Creative use of technology can engage students, and help you integrate your iPads, PCs, or Chromebooks into the curriculum.

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.

Come Visit our State
