This fun social studies product contains a full version of my Communities Social Studies Interactive Notebook, Word Wall, and Activities
and Early American Communities Interactive Social Studies Unit
in one money-saving bundle! With this BIG bundle you will be fully prepared to teach your students about different types of communities by building conceptual knowledge of what a community is and how they vary and then delving deeper into the history of early American communities through studying a wide range of Native American tribes, the pilgrims, and westward expansion across the United States. You get a huge variety of resources with this product including tons of interactive notebook activities, non-fiction articles, word wall cards, task cards, posters, games, craft ideas, science cross-curricular connection activities, research report guides, writing prompts, and more! I have also included teacher's notes, a full table of contents, and recommended research sites where you can pull free, student-friendly articles to print for use with these activities. You could also have students visit the websites on a computer in order to build technology and research skills.
You and your students will love these fun yet rigorous social studies activities, and you will especially love that all activities are easy to plan, low or no prep, and incorporate multiple literacy skills in a way that is fully Common Core aligned! This unit is especially great for starting out the year but can be used any time, and it gives you resources that will last you for months, even if you teach from it every day. Planning and teaching social studies lessons just got so much easier!
