Invite your students to have fun as they learn about events in Oklahoma History!
Oklahoma Academic Standards require that students learn to “Summarize how contemporary Oklahomans affect and change their environments including the Kerr-McLellan Navigation System, creation of recreational lakes by the construction of dams, irrigation of croplands, and the establishment of wildlife refuges.”
This graphic panel activity helps them do just that! This art-based activity reinforces Language Arts skills and is designed for Okmulgee County elementary students. It is thoughtfully created to connect the required Social Studies content areas with place-based education that is meaningful to students.
Relevant Oklahoma Academic Standards for the Social Studies, including Process and Literacy Skills (PALS) for Learning, are identified for Grades 2 and 3 so the teacher can use them at either level.
"Teaching Notes” are provided to easily guide the teacher through the activity. The Student page is ready for students to color in after they read and punctuate; therefore, it makes a great “reward” activity that many teachers use on Friday afternoon. It can also be used on Smart Boards. Resources for the teacher are identified with hyperlinks.
