The last time I wrote about the Common Sense powered educational platform WideOpenSchool it was a review of their field trips resources. In today’s post I am bringing your attention to another excellent resource for social studies classes.
WideOpenSchool’s social studies section features a wide variety of educational materials to use with your students in and outside class. These include free history games, lessons, worksheets, apps, videos, and activities. You can browse through these resources by grade (preschool-12) or by genre such as activity, article/Ebook, audio, lesson, video, website/app, and/or worksheet. Once you find the resource you like you can click on the embedded link to view it. You can also click on the ‘Send’ button to share it via email, as a generated link, or directly to Google Classroom.
The social studies resources on WideOpenSchools are compiled from various educational websites including NASA, PBS Learning media, BrainPop, Common Sense, Time for Kids, and many more. You may want to spend some time going through the resources there and share with us your feedback.
