10 Days Until Christmas.....Tis the Season

Family gatherings such as Thanksgiving or Christmas are a wonderful time to learn about traditions and roots. The United States of America is a melting pot of diversity. Looking at family photos and talking about stories and experiences in your family's country of origin can be a great way to take a trip down memory lane. Look in a box and see if you have some old photographs from before digital photography became popular. Geography, history, social studies in general, are about how the places we live and the places we want to visit all fit together. They are about why we should leave our homes to see the homes of others and learn how they live and what their homes mean to them. Social studies never felt the same as my other classes. Social studies help us understand our place in the world and respect others cultures, values and traditions. As you look at the globe think of the land of your ancestors, the traditions and values that they brought with them. Think of the native peoples of your country and how these perspectives helped shape your world view. We are more alike than we are different. As you decide on Christmas presents this year maybe a globe is the right one for a special someone on your us at we would be more than happy to help you.
