Excellent resource packet for elementary students!
List of... Historical Figures
Geographic Landmarks and Bodies of Water
States and Capitals
Parts of Speech
Students can use these as a guide to find a person or place to research. There's no possibilities of having nothing to do with these lists! The Parts of Speech and Math Shortcuts are my favorite! Students can easily reference the difference between verbs and adverbs with examples as well as clue words in math word problems and difference shapes.
In my classroom, each student receives one packet to keep with them through the year. At any slow moment, I can ask them to pull out their list of Geography to find a place or body of water to research, and they're off! A great extension activity as well!
