Use your creativity in the classroom as an opportunity to develop a class project that incorporates not only social studies, but language arts as well. Choose a history story and produce a class play. Design costumes, paint scenery, write the script, and take your show on the road. Invite other classes to come in to your class and see the play. Bring history alive by putting your students back in time. And, if you live in an area where related history took place, plan a field trip as well.
