Engage Students in Social Studies with Technology!

Use these examples of projects created by students to inspire technology integration in your middle school 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.

Professional Portfolios

Students create a portfolio for a significant person in history to showcase this personís contributions to the community and our life today.

Journey Journals

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

Interview an Artifact

Students interview an artifact, or local monument, to discuss its experience during an historical period.

Come Visit

Students develop materials to promote a region or country they are studying and create a pitch to attract visitors to this location at a tourism trade show.
