4 Activities For Social Studies Journals

Social Studies is another subject I think we could do more writing in.  Since we journal so much anyway, I thought we'd add a Social Studies Journal.  

Here are 4 journal activities that I intend to implement:


1.  "Dear Diary" Entries

Recount the day as someone would from the time period we are studying.  


2.  Hindsight Letters

As a review or evaluation, write a letter to a historical figure explaining to them the consequences of their choices, and whether the child believes the person was correct in their thinking or not.


3.  Brainstorming Solutions

Using current events, brainstorm ideas for causes, effects, and solutions to problems we are facing now.

4.  Travel Log

Children decide where they want to go and research their destination.  Then write a travel log to imagine their trip. 



Class Discussion

Do you have suggestions for writing in geography?


Happy Homeschooling!
