This FREEBIE that is being offered by My Teaching Library is a notebooking page which will focus students on “part of the theme” of place. Studying the theme of place has students looking at things like landforms, climate, biomes, vegetation and much more. With this freebie, students will focus on the major landforms, biomes and human characteristics of the country of Belgium.
This is a notebooking page. If you have never used the notebooking method, here it is in a nutshell: Students will read and/or research a given topic using their existing curriculum or any available resource(s) that they have. Afterwards, they will use the notebooking method to record what they have learned.
This method serves two important purposes:
– To have students write / record what they have learned. In doing so, students must take in the information, analyze it and record the most important information.
– To help students retain the information. Research has proven that when students take information in and then record that information, it is better retained.
