How I used this in my classroom:
I first went over all the counties with my students. We filled in the list of 29 counties included in the packet. Then we went through and filled in all the counties on the map.
Then I divided the counties into four sections. These sections are how I test the students on where the counties are. I used one of the pages with 4 outlines of the counties to label each one with the sections of counties that are tested in the four tests. The other page with 4 outlines of the counties I gave to students to practice labeling the counties for the quizzes. The quizzes are included in the packet for practice. I also included a copy of the county quizzes for you to prepare for the final quiz.
After, I assigned each student a specific county. I gave them ample time to research the county and fill in the research graphic organizer. They then used the information they researched to create a county brochure. The instructions for the county brochure and the rubric are included in this product. I also include some templates for the brochure if you want to use that for your students. This could also be used as a rough draft!
Once each student has complete their brochures we held a class County Day! This day each student gave an oral presentation on their county. They were able to use their brochure to share information about the county to the class. The audience, which is the rest of the students, used the graphic organizer to take 6 notes on each presentation so they could learn and remember information on each county. They also were required to write in 3 questions they could ask the presenter about their county. This gave the listeners a task so they would stay focused during presentations. I printed out 10 copies for each student so they could have space to write information for all 29 counties!
