Standard of Learning Focus – 4th Grade Social Studies

This semester the standard of Learning Focus I would like to hone in on is fourth grade social studies, particularly Virginia history and the Colonial era. Growing up and attending elementary school in Virginia I’ve always been interested in the state of Virginia’s history and remember 4th grade’s history lessons were one of my favorites. Field trips to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Mount Vernon would be a fun way to teach the history of this state as well as an interactive hands on approach to learning. Class room activities using smartboards, educational videos and in-class group activites such as implementing a “Colonial Day” are forms of teaching I would like to use when teaching this specific standard of learning.
