Are you looking for a Social Studies unit on Maps, Continents, and Oceans that has differentiated and cooperative learning activities along with all the materials you need to teach the entire unit? Are you tired of just teaching from the textbook and want something different to do with your class? If so, this packet of materials is literally all that you need – an overall unit outline for 10 days of activities, interactive notes, quizzes, suggested homework assignments, class activities (both regular and differentiated), and a unit test.
**If you teach in Virginia, this unit of study specifically correlates to Social Studies/History, SOL 3.5(a-c)(e), 3.6.
This unit has been set up so that students study from interactive notebooks; a regular composition book or spiral notebook is sufficient. I grade the notebooks at the end of the unit; it encourages the children to follow directions and also gives them a chance for an “easy A” daily grade. It is, of course, optional.
You will get:
A unit outline (10 days)
Rubric for grading the interactive notebook
Study Guide questions
Study Guide answer key
Vocabulary Terms page
Group Activity Materials
Interactive notes (along with teacher guides)
Review Quizzes answer keys
Unit Test answer key
I have included the Table of Contents and the lesson timeline as a free download so that you can have a better idea if this packet of materials will work for you.
If you are just interested in the activities and not the rest of the unit, I have posted the activities as a separate listing for a lower fee. So please check out my listings if you are interested.
**Optional activities involve a PowerPoint presentation ("Maps and the Earth") and a Smartboard presentation ("From Sea to Shining Sea"). Both can be purchased separately. Check my listings if you are interested.
