Welcome to Ms. Evans' Class!

 

 

 

I will post academic website links here that your children can use to improve their Science and Social Studies skills that will be learned throughout the year. 

Links:

 Congressforkids.net

This website is a great resource for most of the Social Studies topics we will cover throughout the year. A few include The Constitution, Elections, Citizenship, etc.

 

**We will also complete Current Event Activities for Social Studies. This will involve having the students research information and details about current news or events that are occuring around the world. My hope is that Current Event Activities will increase your child's motivation and interest to stay updated about important events that surround them.**

 

Social Studies Unit: Current Event Activity
