• Virginia Scrapbook Project 

    Road Map of VA   

    Did you know that there is a lot of history right here in our home state of Virginia?  Have you ever traveled outside of Ashburn and Loudoun County to see what else is out there?  This project gives students and their families the opportunity to experience history first hand. The Fourth Grade Social Science curriculum focuses on Virginia Studies.  The students will learn about Virginia history throughout the year.  Students will have the opportunity to apply their knowledge by visiting historical sites in person.  Thank you for your support and have fun!

    DUE DATE: 4th Quarter - Friday, May 31st

    DIRECTIONS
    You will put together a hard copy or digital scrapbook showing where you have traveled in Virginia over the past school year.  What do you want your classmates and teacher to see?  Take lots of pictures and please follow the guidelines.

    Guidelines:

    Your project should include:

    • 5 historical sites in Virginia (only 1 of those locations may be in Washington D.C.)
    • Pictures of the location (pictures of you at the site)
    • A narrative explaining the importance of the location.
    • A reflection for each location: What did you learn? What was your favorite part? Would you recommend this location to others?

    Create your scrapbook using: a photo album, scrapbook or poster paper, Google Docs, Google Slides, Canva, or other communication tool.  Creativity is encouraged!
