Hi! I read your blog ALL the time but I don't know how I missed all these GREAT Social Studies project ideas. Seriously, I have been saving pretty much all your ideas in GoogleDocs. Thanks for posting! I teach 4th grade in IL and we are moving more towards authentic assessment and I love your ideas. Again, thanks!
