This product includes interactive notebook pages for the West region of the United States. When cut out, papers are sized to fit in a composition notebook that has been cut in half. All five regions together will almost fill a 100 page composition notebook when both sides of each page are used. Papers could also be used in a full composition notebook or spiral notebook two per page. Use all the interactive notebook pages for a comprehensive resource about the United States, or use just the ones that you need to complement your social studies curriculum.
For each region, there are blank versions for students to use in both color and black & white options. The filled-in, color version is intended for teachers to create a model of the interactive notebook which can also be used as an answer key with fast facts and possible state information. Please note that answers may vary for state information based upon the curriculum in your classroom. Also, the question/connection box and the flap books are not filled-in on any version.
Most pages can be simply cut out, glued in, and then filled in. Due to the size of the product, the amount of cutting and folding has been kept to a minimum. Each region includes the following interactive notebook pages (38 total for the West):
• Title page for students to illustrate
• List of Contents (only use if you are using all the pages included)
• States & Capitals map
• Products & Resources flap book
• Landmarks & Physical Features flap book
• Life in the region flip book (leisure, climate, and culture)
• 2 pages for facts and information about each state in the region, these include illustrations of the state outline, state flag, state bird, and state flower
• Pages for 9 or more different stops in each region (West: Lolo Pass, Yellowstone National Park, Leadville, Hollywood, Central Valley, Columbia River Gorge, Tacoma, Anchorage, Honolulu)
• Essential Questions page(s) for the region as a whole
