I’ve combined my Tennessee Factbook and Tennessee Culture Booklet for those of you who’d like to use both in your classrooms. I'm a sucker for a good deal, so if you get them together, you'll save some of your precious money! :)
*NOTE: This bundles the other two Tennessee products in my store, and includes everything from both. If you purchase this, you should not purchase the other pieces.*
These products work very well together. I use both in my classroom, and the students stay active and engaged while learning the most important things about Tennessee.
The Tennessee Factbook is an all-in-one book to help you teach about Tennessee’s cities, landscape, products, symbols, and history. This booklet organizes it all.
Activities included in the factbook:
* A political map of Tennessee (blank)
* A physical map of Tennessee (blank)
* Describing the physical features of Tennessee
* A narrative chain to help students remember the physical features and where they are located.
* A products map of Tennessee (blank)
* Products in TN- Where various natural resources and crops are found
* Three Divisions cut and paste activity
* Why Tennessee? –Special features and TN symbols
* TN state government and location of TN
* TN state history
* TN state flag- Who created it and what the colors stand for.
* Labeling TN- A cut an paste activity to summarize important concepts.
I used different books, websites, maps, and atlases to help me teach the different concepts in this unit. This booklet is ideal for interacting with others in the classroom to learn and organize new information! (Whole class, working in groups, or using resources to complete the pages independently.)
The Tennessee Culture booklet can be used to teach your students about Tennessee culture! When learning about the three grand divisions, the students need to know about the diverse cultures across Tennessee. Having the three divisions in one booklet helps students be able to compare and contrast the diverse regions. Teach however you’d like, using videos from You Tube, PowerPoint presentations, etc… have kids follow along and record important information in these booklets. They’re a great way to organize information!
The booklet is very easy to make. Simply copy the pages front to back, match up the page numbers, fold all at once, and staple! I’ve also included labels I used, kind of like a souvenir when students finished with a region of Tennessee. Students stuck these at the bottom of each main page.
I hope your students enjoy these products as much as mine did! If you have any questions, please shoot me an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
