New Social Studies Resource About Connecticut for Third Graders: Is Your Town In It?
Connecticut Explored, the magazine of Connecticut history, has just launched “Where I Live: Connecticut,” a new social studies book, e-book, and website about Connecticut for third graders that supports the state’s new social studies frameworks. Third graders (fourth graders in some towns) study “Our State and Our City/Town: Yesterday and Today.” Stories from across southeastern Connecticut are included in the resource, including several submitted by staff at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Mohegan tribal elder Faith Damon Davison.
The resource includes profiles of towns. Connecticut Explored is looking for historical societies or other interested parties to contribute a profile of their town. A template is available at https://whereilivect.org/for-historical-societies-museums/. Read examples at https://whereilivect.org/towns/. We are also linking to field trips listed on teachitct.org.
Help us spread the word about this new resource to your school district. The e-book and website are available for FREE. Print copies are available for a modest cost. For question, contact Elizabeth Normen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-233-5421.
