Ok, so off my soapbox and onto a post on Famous Americans and a paper bag book. I shared this on a previous post last year but decided to post on it again because I think this type of study guide lends itself to so many possibilities. What you do is simply cut off the tops of paper bags and then staple the bags together to make the number of pages you need. I gave my students the title page and they glued it on the front cover.
**PLEASE HELP HERE: Why are my pictures always flipping this way. The picture was taken the other way but Blogger keeps flipping it. Any suggestions?
There are certain famous Americans we focus on and certain points students need to know about each. I generally take students down the time line. I introduce a couple of famous Americans a day. We read biographies, our text book or view powerpoints/smartboard slides about a person and then we fill out the slip and they glue it onto the next page. They get a picture of the famous American and they glue it on an index card. On the back of the card they must draw symbols and write a label that relates to that person.
We store the word cards in a ziplock snack bag and then it goes in the last empty page of our book.
We will be pulling this out again next month in preparation for the SOL test.
Interested in the materials to make this with your students?
