Time in Social Studies

Teacher Page


This WebQuest has
been created with the assistance of my third grade son and through the
observation of highly qualified educators in order to understand time in the
umbrella of Social Studies Standards according to the State of Arizona. The period that this WebQuest will take to complete by the student who interact
with it is approximate five days at 50-minute sessions.
However, as we all
know, sometimes life happens.  I have
designed one day of primarily games to make up for days that are hectic and to
keep your schedule on track. In addition, giving time for differentiated instruction. Each day had been customized to allow additional time.

A piece of advice would be to walk the students through the WebQuest first each
day then let the student explore. There are many fun activities to keep the
third grade student interest peeked. The extra time allowed for games and the group activities gives opportunities for instructor to use
differentiated instruction. In addition, the group activities allow for struggling student to succeed.


This WebQuest has been created to umbrella the Social Study strands in the aspect of time change and is according to Arizona State Standards.(https://www1.taskstream.com/)
