Grades 6-8 Social Studies Activities

Expanding Horizons

Help your child learn about people from different countries. Suggest talking to neighbors from foreign countries, reading library books about other cultures, reading newspapers, and watching TV specials.

Let Your Voice Be Heard

Promote good citizenship. Help your child write a letter to the editor of the local newspaper about an issue affecting children. For example, suggest that a bike path be built near the school or that a city event be planned for youngsters.

Every child deserves a chance to learn and no child succeeds alone.
