Hey ~ This is Karen and Kelly from Kennedy's Korner. We are here at the Primary Pack on the 4th of every month. Today we are sharing tips and tools to help you integrate Science and Social Studies.
If you are like me.. I always have a hard time fitting in time to teach Science and Social Studies. So over the years I have learned how to integrate my units into my ELA block.
Social studies is an often-neglected subject in elementary school because typically it isn't on the state tests our students take. However, informational text comprehension is tested so every teacher should find a way to teach Social Studies during the ELA block. If you think about it, what better way to teach non-fiction reading strategies than through interesting and relevant resources that relates to the world our students live in. Science is a subject that is tested in most states and children generally love this subject because it is more hands on than social studies. BUT I still have difficulty finding time to teach it as a stand alone subject, even though that is the expectation in most districts.
I have found a way around this dilemma and I am here to share with you some tips and tools to help you integrate it across the curriculum in your room too.

We hope our post was helpful and gave you some ideas how you can find more time to teach science and social studies.
