Use this 9 page booklet to review geography, culture, timeline skills, and government in a Europe unit! As we fill in this booklet I show several pictures and short movie clips from 9 beloved children's movies to help demonstrate these topics in a fun way. (I made a flipchart with photos from each movie, but due to copyright restrictions, I did not include it in this product for sale. However, I have included a detailed list of google search terms and youtube clip suggestions so you can tailor the lesson to your preferences.) My 3rd graders loved this activity, and it was a fun way to review our social studies standards!
This booklet was designed to review parts of the following 3rd grade TN state social studies standards:
3.39 Describe the diverse but unified nature of people within a continent or region, identifying the distinct contribution made by their culture including language, clothing, food, art, beliefs, customs, and music.
3.40 Use timelines... to summarize the history of a region, including events, inventions/inventors, artists, writers, and political figures. (Suggestions are as follows: ...monarchies...)
3.41 Identify major countries of the continent (...France, Italy, and United Kingdom).
3.42 Identify major physical features of the continent:
• Bodies of Water - Mediterranean Sea
3.44 Interpret a chart, graph, or resource map of major imports and exports.
3.45 Compare and contrast a monarchy and a democratic form of government.
