Conclusion
  • This unit was put together in order to aid in the
    teaching of world studies to students at the
    fifth grade level. It is meant to go along with
    the textbook and topics that the class is
    studying not to stand alone. I feel that these
    web sites and activities will help students
    develop a deeper understanding of the information
    contained in the strands.
