This resource was created for students to dig deeper into historical events with their “I Survived .” books. These papers fit perfectly on the Target Dollar Spot Blank Books, or they can be stapled together to make a book. Use with historical research projects, natural disaster projects, in reading and writing workstations, as a book club activity, or as a lesson extension. I hope you find this resource more than useful in your classroom!
