This resource is a Growth of the Nation DIGITAL Interactive Notebook for upper elementary. This unit covers American History from Reconstruction - The Spanish- American War, or events from about 1865 - 1900. The file is 225 pages long and includes a complete answer key and a unit assessment.

Please note, this unit includes the same activities as my Reconstruction - 1900 U.S. History Interactive Notebook Unit, but these graphic organizers are digital. Teachers may want to use both versions with students to meet different needs.

Digital pages can be used without cutting or gluing. The graphic organizers can also be printed to use as note sheets. The answer keys can also be printed for students with IEPs requiring written notes.

There are 67 colored graphic organizers, and those same organizers are also included in black and white. The answer key is included, and it is written on the black and white organizers so that teachers can print them for students with printed notes in their IEPs.
