PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Please visit my blog, www.CFClassroom.com, for daily tips and photos on organizing and managing your classroom.

I teach third grade in Massachusetts. Our state frameworks include teaching the students about the Pilgrims and Wampanoags. I created this portfolio project as a means of organizing all of the information that the students learned as we worked on this unit. They LOVED completing these and learned so much doing so.

The kit includes directions for creating the portfolio booklets using construction paper as well as reproducible printables for each student.

Keywords: social studies, portfolio, lapbook, lapbooking, history, project-based learning, colonial life, pilgrims, plimouth, thanksgiving

I am always on the hunt for great resources to go along with our Massachusetts history unit. This project is sure to be a hit. The clear and precise directions / visuals are fabulous. My students will love the hands-on approach to social studies. Thanks! My only preference would have been to have a font that utilized proper capitalization rules throughout the project.

I love the concept of the lapbook and the graphic organizers. It's a great product but it has taken me a lot of time to find the information in student friendly terms to complete the graphic organizers. A book list or other resources used during class would have been helpful. I meant to rate it a "4" for creativity.

I love this product! I like the pictures of the project. I was a little dissappointed because there were no directions/plans for using it. What books or resources did you use? I also don't understand the partner activity near the end.

I think this is my favorite product I have ever bought! It took a lot of work to put the portfolios together, but I LOVED the depth of this project. My students were researching at home, at school, DURING RECESS. They were SO proud of their work! I just loved every minute of it! I hope you will create more portfolio projects! -Carmen

A list of book resources would have been extremely helpful, as well as more detailed instructions on putting together the lap book. I purchased this product, but not sure if I'm going to end up using it due to what may be a frustrating endeavor of trying to figure out the best resources to use and putting it together.
