Use these examples of projects created by students to inspire technology integration in your primary social studies program.
These digital projects were created by primary students using Wixie.
Have students write a simple story about a family member or a thank you to a community member. Have them record their voice and share on Mother's Day, Father's Day, or even Valentine's Day.
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.
After learning about community helpers, students type or record a sentence and draw a picture to demonstrate their learning.
Students use a cluster organizers to show what they know about a person or event in history.
Students learned about the difference between past and present and captured pictures of things at home from the past. They shared images of these items and added text and voice narration to explain more about them.
Students learned how a bill becomes a law and share the process through a multi-page project showing the process.
Students demonstrate understanding of sequence of events by placing them in order on a timeline.
