PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Learn about Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean, our North American neighbors! Each unit includes a 10-page complex informational text, unit test, reading questions, and a lapbook.

This is a collection of three complete units and three lapbooks for teaching about America's neighbors. This listing contains the three complete units:
Canada: Our Neighbor to the North Complete Unit with Complex Text
Mexico: Our Neighbor to the South Complete Unit with Complex Text
The Caribbean: Our Island Neighbors Complete Unit.


This collection contains 9 separate files. There are three separate files for each unit. Each unit has a 10-page informational text packet that can be used as a "textbook chapter" when teaching about that country. In the complex text, your students will learn about the land, water, climate, products, natural resources, landmarks, government, money, and culture. Also included is an Anticipation Guide is to be used as they read the packet to guide their reading, a 30 question quiz, and a fun "scrapbook" activity with a grading rubric.

Plus three lapbooks:
Canada: Our Neighbor to the North Lapbook
Mexico: Our Neighbor to the South Lapbook
The Caribbean: Our Island Neighbors Lapbook.


Each lapbook unit includes ten foldable pieces that students can either use to create a lapbook or use in an interactive notebook. The lapbook and notebook pieces are great to use as a formative assessment as you progress through your study of America's Neighbors. The foldable pieces will help your students record their learning about the land, water, climate, landmarks, products and natural resources, culture, government, and money of Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

While these materials were written to correspond to Florida's Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for 3rd grade Social Studies when I couldn't find anything else appropriate for my students, these units are also perfect for 4th, 5th, or 6th graders studying the countries of North America.
