I am so excited for this upcoming year! our district just got a new social studies program and i have been looking through it and thinking of different things i can do... When the kids come back to school in 2 weeks we will first be working on Investigating the past (cave art, detectives who study the past, etc..) i want to set up a cave-like environment in the classroom so the students can pretend they are detectives investigating the past and looking at different types of cave art. i am looking for some ways i could set up a cave-like environment in the classroom..... i am open to all suggestions!! thanks a bunch!!!!
