Social Studies Boxes

I'm continuing to add to the box categories in the left hand side bar. It's a fun exercise to see what we have on hand that I haven't used in a while. I've been taking new pictures and I began to realize that I've featured many of these items in older posts.

So, I've taken a trip down memory lane and pulled old posts to fit my new categories. One such category is social studies. We have tons of games, maps, and books on history, geography, government, etc.

Keep checking back in on these labels under Workboxes because I'll keep adding as I can. I pulled the first picture below from one of my first game time posts.

The Global Puzzle- you've seen this one in recent posts. We also have the Animal Global Puzzle and a two sided National Geographic puzzle map.
Games include Great States and Great States Jr, Scrambled States of America and the card game, Carmen Sandiego 20 Questions history game, an older game called Global Pursuit by National Geographic.

Computer software in this category would be Liberty Kids, Oregon Trail, and Carmen Sandiego.

Our kids enjoy Oregon Trail whenever we dive into the Prairie Primer.
Amazon and Rainbow Resource both have the board games and puzzles in the first picture. Staples carries the National Geographic Puzzle.

I love that I find so many useful things on your blog. Because of you, we got out The Meanest Doll in the World and have been reading that at night. Because of you, I'm planning on setting up workboxes and thinking about buying the ebook about it. And, because of you I'm thinking about buying Beyond FIAR.

I have a question about 2 items you mention on this post - Scrambed States of America game & Carmen San Diego 20 questions. Could you tell me a little more about them? Do your kids really enjoy them and do you find them very educational? (you can post about it or email me at drleeds at sbcglobal dot net)

Also, just this week we picked up all of the computer games you mentioned. Half Price had a 4 game set for $10! We haven't started it yet, though. Oh, and we got a Carmen Sandiego computer game at Chick-Fil-A last week!
