You can also find a few ways to utilize paper chains in social studies:
* Street - school - city - county - state - country: link them in geographical importance
* Names of family members - father, mother, self, siblings (can add grandparents, pets, etc. if they want.)
* Divide class into groups. Give each group a topic (ex: farm animals, pets, fruits, ice cream flavors, etc.) Have each team come up with as many answers as they can, writing one answer on each loop. (Of course, spelling doesn't count.) See whose chain is the longest.
