These interactive notebook graphic organizers will help students organize information about the study of the U.S. Constitution. It's a must-do in my classroom for the week surrounding Constitution Day!
Interactive notebooks are an effective tool in the classroom. Not only can they assist students in keeping their work organized, but they are also an easy-to-access resource for reference throughout the year.
The United States Constitution Interactive Notebook graphic organizers resource is intended as a resource for late-elementary and middle school ages.
It does not include any types of informational text for students, but does include 10 different interactive activities
to help students organize information and an answer key
to use as a guide for each graphic organizer.
The file also includes pictures of every page in use!
