Learning Social Studies... "Inside and Outside the Box"


W.J. Williams Middle School students in Holly Bullard's 6th grade Social Studies class are studying Latin America. Students were assigned a Latin American country to research. The project requirements were to provide information such as capital city, population, climate, natural resources, etc.  Students also included a map, flag, and an animal. Students brought in cereal boxes and decorated the "outside of the box" with all of the information collected from their research. Finally, they had to include something in the box that had to do with their country.

Pictured are Roger Umanzor, Sherlyn Perez Trejo, and Kaleb Dell.  Their group had Mexico, and they shared fried tacos for the whole class as their something special "inside the box".
