Help with 4th grade social studies

I am looking for help for my 4th grade social studies! Our school has no set curriculum. I need some great ideas to teach social studies to them. What kind of topics do you cover? Do you have any awesome resources you can share?

we have to do our state history and in the 25 years I've taught 4th grade, I've never had to teach it We switched our kids around for "topics" (science/social studies) and I always teach science to all the 4th graders(plus all the other subjects to my homeroom)

What see your state standards for SS? I have to teach govt., economics, geography, and MI history from statehood to present. If you know your big topics you will probably get more help.

So are you saying you have no standards? No state standards to cover? Interesting!

Most 4th grade standards center on state history, geography, government.

You may still wish to research (google) your state and check it out to give you some place to start.

Studies Weekly

I would order the Studies Weekly newspaper designed to meet your state standards and use it like your text book. I have used it to teach third and fourth grade classes at different times and have always liked it. It costs about $5.50 a student. To save money I have bought one for every two students before. They have to share with a partner and that worked well in my classroom.
