Some of the geography activities in the social studies interactive notebook include types of maps, landforms (shown below), the seven continents, and hemispheres (shown below).
There are slides for teaching the regions of the United States. The digital version of the activities is shown below.
Social Studies Interactive Notebook
Wars, Conflicts, and Battles
I wanted to provide a lot of flexibility when it came to teaching about different wars. Standards and expectations vary greatly from state to state and from grade level to grade level, so I created open-ended options where the teacher determines how in-depth students should go in the entry. Each of the three graphic organizers include the following:
- blank option
- French and Indian War
- Revolutionary War
- War of 1812
- Civil War
- World War 1
- World War 2
Social Studies Interactive Notebook – Historical Figures
There really isn’t a way to list everyone that should be listed. At the time of creating this resource, I included all requested individuals. However, we all know how frequently our state standards change, so it’s almost impossible to keep up with all states’ updates. That’s why there is a blank page for each type of historical figure activity. You can see the digital blank version as well as the Harriet Tubman version below.
This is the printable version of the same activity using Paul Revere.
The entries to use with economics include supply and demand, productive resources (shown below), and economic vocabulary (shown below).
My students found my interactive notebook before they started their notebooks and couldn’t have been more excited to get started! Here’s a link to the Social Studies Interactive Notebook.
