Investigate the Japanese Internment in Canada with this product which features a historic photo, pre reading activities, passage and post reading activity.
Format: Pre-Reading pages and the passage in this product can be placed into an interactive notebook or just printed and put into a three pronged folder. The flip book can fit in an interactive notebook, but if you don;t use in interactive notebooks then you can just have students complete the flip book and glue it to a sheet of loose leaf paper and put it in their duo-tangs.
1) Two pre-reading activities:
1)The first focuses on vocabulary. Students match the
Definition to the word. In addition to the words on the
matching activity students should also be familiar with:
allies, fleet, exhibition, possessions, labour,
insulated, generation, citizenship
2) The second is an anticipation guide. Students read each
statement and decide if they agree or disagree with each
statement. They write A for agree or D for disagree in
the first empty column. Then they read the passage.
Once they are finished reading they return to the
anticipation guide and mark their responses by placing a
check or x in the last column.
2) Passage: Approximately Grade 5 according to a lexile leveller.
3) Post Reading: Flip Book featuring a real, historic photo (reminder that the quality of the photo will depend on the quality of the printer used). The post reading is a set of questions about the Japanese Internment. The questions vary. Some are short answer, long answer and fill in the blank.
Optional-Keep the Learning Going: The last question in the flip book asks students to write a question that they still have about the Japanese Canadian Internment . I intend to have students come up with a question and have them research the question.
Notes on How to Construct:
The interactive notebook version is easy to use — no complicated folding or cutting. First have students assemble the flip book by having them put together the pages so that the pages form a picture. They have them put the vocabulary/anticipation guide and the passage at the back of the book. These pages form the last 2 pages of the flip book. Once the book is assembled, staple along the left hand side. Put glue on the back of the assembled book and glue into the notebook or staple the flip book to a bulletin board for display.
