Culture Grams & 6th Grade Social Studies

Students in 6th grade social studies have begun working on their African country/region project, and as they did last year, students visited the library for a lesson related to Culture Grams. This great database is provided to us through the AEA, and students were so pleased to learn that all of the information they needed to find about their country or region was included there!

When students had time to read and take notes, many started Google docs to keep track of their information. As one student said, "I've never had this much fun doing research--everything I need is right here!"
