In fourth-grade social studies, we wrapped up an interesting unit on World War II. The students were extremely engaged during these lessons, and we had many thought-provoking discussions and activities. The kids’ summative assessment was to research a specific topic about World War II and then create a Google slideshow presentation that they would use while teaching the class. A few boys were eager to not only share their slideshow but also recreate the Battle of Normandy using action figures and vehicles. I am so thrilled that these boys were inspired to go above and beyond and think outside the box!
