Note: I have updated the old version of these notes to the new VA SOLs (2016 version). I have also updated the SMARTboard listed here on tpt that coordinates with these notes.
This 17 page interactive notebook covers the entire Virginia Studies Virginia Indians Unit. This interactive notebook contains:
*Student notebook organizer page
*3 pages of student notes - includes all SOL information!
*Graphic Organizers for students to glue into their notebooks on these subjects:
-The Articles of Confederation
-Major Disagreement at the Constitutional Convention
-3 Branches of the Government
-Virginia Declaration of Rights
-Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom
-Bill of Rights
-Agricultural Changes in Virginia
-Migration of Virginians
-Moving to New Lands
The student pages are graphic organizer oriented, which is a great preparation for the SOL test! My students LOVE these notes and their success on the VA SOL test shows me the effectiveness of this program!
The order of the notes follows my SMARTboard lesson on the same topic which is also listed here on Teachers Pay Teachers. I teach a topic through SMARTboard and then pause to do the notebook. We read through & highlight notes and follow up with student practice on the graphic organizers. I use a three ring binder with tabs for each unit - kids glue their graphic organizers onto loose leaf notebook paper. The notebook would also work for a composition notebook.
