This will be my second year teaching 5th grade social studies. As hard as I tried last year, I just couldn't make it interesting. Our currciculum goes from Early Americans to the Revolutionary War. There is a ton of curriculum to cover, and we are given a text, but I'm more of a hands-on kind of person. Does anyone have any idea how to incorporate FUN into the curriculum, without it being too time consuming? I have to make sure I cover everything. UGH@ Thanks!
