Product Description
Your students will love this creative way to learn about archaeology and the Stone Age with "Less Mess" Interactive Notebook Activities with a built-in online component!

{Social Studies Interactive Notebook; Archaeology Interactive Notebook; Stone Age Interactive Notebook; Fossils; Artifacts; Mary Leakey; Cave Art; Hunter Gatherers; Stone Tools; Modern Humans; Farming; Specialization; Paleolithic; Neolithic}

My “Less Mess” Interactive Notebook Activities allow for two simple steps: cut around the border and glue it in. That’s it! They are perfect for teachers who may have their students for just one short period per day. However, if you are a big fan of the “folds and flaps” that usually come with interactive notebooks, this resource can be a nice supplement to add to what you already have or to use on days when you may have less time.

The pages are designed so that they will work in spiral notebooks, composition books, three hole binders, or as individual activity pages if you are not yet fully ready to commit to interactive notebooks in your classroom.

Please note that many of these activities require internet access (mostly to You Tube but other sites are included as well).

Some of the activities included are also sold individually in my store (but not in interactive notebook format in the individual listings). These are marked with asterisks below.The pages included are:
