Social studies is the "integrated study of the social sciences and humanities to promote civic competence," (US National Council for Social Studies)

Below are resources I have collected and used (or in a few cases, made) over the years.

We didn't have a globe on hand so I found these neat online 3D globe models to use:
  • 3D Interactive Globe - you can rotate it to see different areas. There are eight different globes such as photorealistic, terrain, night, climate zones and more.
  • MeteoEarth - see real time weather and temperature conditions in this 3D model.
  • Google Earth - explore places around the earth
