It's almost here! Summer vacation! A time for kids to relax, recharge, and probably forget all about social studies for a couple of months. All our hard and innovating work to get them excited about history and social studies fades with each trip to the beach or baseball field.
But you know what? Sometimes it rains in the summer. Sometimes it's too hot or too humid to go outside. Some days are great movie days! So, here is my social studies summer watch list. These are great movies or TV shows that are sure to keep your students interested in and excited about history throughout the long and glorious summer months!
If you can think of any more great ones that you recommend to your students, please add them in the comments section below!
