PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Interactive Social Studies Notebooks are wonderful, and fun, ways to introduce your students to history!

I've been using notebooking in Social Studies for over a year now, and I love it! My units involve a lot of reading, and even includes mini-books and reading passages! These mini-books have foldables and other activities that focus on reading skills, such as summarizing, looking for main idea and details, highlighting important information, taking notes, etc. My students have loved watching their notebooks grow throughout the school year and enjoy looking back at what they have learned.

This 53 page Explorers packet is my complete Explorers unit. It is a stand-alone unit, so it DOES NOT require a text book.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Each mini-book is topic specific, and written for my fifth graders, however, I believe it can be used in grades 4th-6th. For each mini-book, there is a coordinating activity that can be added to a notebook. Reading the mini-book, then completing an activity helps cement the newly acquired knowledge into the minds of students!
