Never content to have just ONE project going on, I've started a social studies project this week that we'll work on for the next few weeks. It's called "The Amazing Race."
The project is modeled after the television show of the same name. (A show I highly recommend, by the way, for people of all ages--Sundays, CBS, 8:00).
In this project, students work in teams to design a "race" across the country. Their job is to write 10 clues that would lead a team from place to place. They'll be using research, technology, and social studies skills to do this.
You can view all the details at The Amazing Race Project homepage.
I'll keep you updated as we go along. It should be fun!
