This resource for the Age of Enlightenment is ideal for 5th - 9th grades. This is NOT simply a product full of templates and organizers. You will find that all of the lessons and pages in my notebooks are truly interactive, not just worksheets to color and glue into notebooks.
Here you will find some of my student’s favorite foldable projects that cover the following lessons:
Each of the 13 lessons plus 3 bonus lesson (and over 175 pages!) includes photos of the finished product, teacher’s notes, detailed teacher’s instructions, and student pages. You will find that all of the information needed to begin teaching these concepts is in here. This is NOT simply a product full of templates and organizers that require hours of research and prep time - I have included all of that information for you! I have also included many differentiated versions of each lesson to help you meet the needs of all your students from challenge to at risk.
