Social Studies: What's My (Nick) Name?

Students examine the nicknames given to former first ladies, such as Rosalind Carter, and discover how they are based on personality traits. After applying online research skills, they write paragraphs explaining why the nicknames were appropriate to the individual. Then, reflecting on their own traits, they write paragraphs describing a nickname for themselves.

I train teachers pre-K-12 to use the arts to teach any subject (arts integration). Lesson Planet has given me some great ideas to share as we all attempt to make the arts an important part of every child's education.
