Are your students researching the Smithsonian Castle? This product contains note taking sheets and flip books for displaying student research of this famous landmark.
Each note sheet and flip book is presented three ways - with primary lines (these have a dotted line in the middle and are often used in grades 1 and 2), lines (for upper grades), and no lines. Choose which format is best for your students; in an inclusive classroom you can use the different formats to differentiate for your students.
The note taking sheets with lines can be printed double sided, as they allow for two pages of notes. The unlined versions are one page. Students will need to take notes on where the Smithsonian Castle is, when it was built, who designed it, why it was built, and fun facts (I have my students list at least 3, but you could choose more or less based on your students).
Students then use their notes to complete the flip book. Students can write their reports using complete sentences, paragraphs, or bulleted phrases. Depending on your students, you may expect responses to be more or less detailed. For example, to answer where the Smithsonian Castle is, you might expect:
- In Washington, D.C.
- At 1000 Jefferson Dr. SW, Washington, D.C.
- Located near the National Mall and behind the National Museum of African Art, the Smithsonian Castle can be found at 1000 Jefferson Dr. SW in Washington, D.C.
A works cited page is included for those who would like to use one.
Because this product allows you so many ways to differentiate the outcome, it is useful for many grade levels!
Detailed directions and pictures are included to help you explain how to assemble the booklet.
I have also created other flip books for famous U.S. and world monuments and landmarks.
Thank you for looking! :)
