I want my 4th graders to do a project for social studies. We learn about our state on 4th grade. Iím trying to come up with something other than a diorama or report.... does anyone have any projects that your students do that you love?

How about a float parade? They can each use a shoebox or something similar, put wheels on it, design something around a state resource/location/activity and take it for a walk around the school.

We've done a state brochure. Students create a trifold and include facts, photos, maps, etc. to "advertise" our state.

We did green screen projects last year and the kids loved doing them! Ours were Science-based (pollution), but yours could record themselves giving a state report and place themselves in front of a point of interest from their state. I had never done green screen before, but we figured it out together and it was fun. We used to do the state float parade and it was fun too.

When I was in 4th grade, we made a book. The ABCs of...(insert state). I remember have a lot of fun making it and learning some cool facts about my state as I tried to come up with something for each letter.

We have a Wax Museum of Famous Ohioans. They could still dress up like the person and send a pic. Write or record a report and make a slide show.
