5 Multimedia Projects for Social Studies Classes
If you teach social studies and you're looking for a new project to engage your students this year, I have some suggestions for you. All of the following ideas can be modified for use in elementary school, middle school, or high school settings. Create Virtual Tours Services like Google Expeditions are great for locating virtual tours for students to watch. Create a News Podcast Rather than just doing the standard "current events discussion day," have your students record short podcasts in which they talk with a classmate or two about current events articles they've found interesting. Build Augmented Reality History and Geography GamesMetaverse Studio lets anyone create an augmented reality game. Make a Short Documentary If we make students watch documentary videos, we should also let them try making their own. Build Multimedia Timelines The timeline project is as old as history classes.
