This really is the BEST Textbook Assignment Ever!
I don't usually USE textbooks- but the National Geographic edition of the World Cultures was so well made-- that I decided to actually use it, with some other more active activities (which I'll try to get together for y'all), and it proved so worthwhile, that I made it an every week thing! All I had to do was switch out the pages assignments from week to week. This really helped me since I was given 5-10 minutes a day to teach Social Studies! Really. I noticed that the kids got so adept at grabbing the right kind of organizer and putting the pertinent info into it, that when the Benchmark rolled around, full of graphic organizer and concept map based questions, they did really well!
I hope this helps you and your students as well as it did mine! Please check back for new products, as I'm getting faster as posting them, kind-of,(it takes like 14 files and file-types for every product!) and plan to have tons of new things added throughout the year! -- Or "ollow me" for automatic updates every time I post a new product! Comments are always welcome, and, if you need a response or have a problem, please leave your email, so that I can respond and maybe send you a freebie or something for your trouble!
