My students love booklets! Here is a booklet to cover the new VA social sciences content on Jamestown.
To do this activity, students will cut pages 1-3 in half to create a 6 page booklet on Jamestown. Students will cut apart mixed facts from their "My Jamestown Facts" sheet and sort them by category before gluing them to the appropriate page.
Pages include a title page, Settlement of Jamestown, Struggles in Jamestown, Chief Powhatan, Pocahontas, and Christopher Newport.
If you teach first grade in Virginia, this booklet is a MUST. I was having a hard time finding age-appropriate content in simple language to teach these new Virginia standards, so I did some research and created my own!
This would be a great introductory or culminating activity to help students organize new information on Jamestown. They can sort the facts independently or in small groups.
This PDF includes:
-A personal booklet on the Story of Jamestown with page numbers and pictures
-Jamestown facts sheet
-Fact sorting mat
-Fact sorting "cheat sheet" with answers
I will also throw in that I personally plan to use the "Chatterpix Kids" app to have my students create and share biographies of each character as an extension activity to this booklet.
Good luck, fellow VA educators (And anyone else who may find this product useful)!
