I highly recommend getting my Explorers Interactive Notebook Activities to use with these lesson PowerPoints. No time for interactive notebook activities? No problem! My Social Studies Interactive Notebooks include Quick Notes (students simply write in notes) as well as pre-filled Quick Notes and digital quick notes templates for Google Classroom.

This is one component included in my Explorers Unit Bundle.

These resources are also available to teach Explorers:

Explorers Interactive Notebook

Explorers Vocabulary Posters, Flash Cards, and Word Wall Cards

Explorers Tests and Study Guides

This unit was designed for grades 4-6.

All of my American History materials are part of a huge American History Curriculum Mega-Bundle. You can find that by clicking here.
