Your students want to learn and they love when given a chance to take charge of their learning! That is why I’ve created this U.S. Elections themed resource that will give them the opportunities they need to take charge, make decisions, collaborate and learn…all while creating a wonderful project! This resource will give the students the opportunity to learn about different aspects of U.S. elections (whether local or national) and at the same time give them choices as to what they want (or need) to focus on. It will also give them the opportunity to choose how they want to work (alone or in a group) and how they present their findings (notebooking or lapbooking).
Of course, if you as the teacher, want (or need) to assign specifics and give them less control, you can do that as well. !
This lapbook has been designed to give students a creative project to create about America’s Independence Day – the 4th of July!
Students are given various lapbooking templates on a variety of topics. They will then research or read books about each, record what they have learned and add to their lapbook. These topics include…
– Pledge of Allegiance
– The American flag and winning independence
– Founding fathers: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and others
– American Symbols, the words ‘patriotic’ and ‘freedom’
This resource has been designed so that students can use to report on any country throughout the world! Students can use this resource time and time again and create an entire collection of country lapbooks. A large variety of templates are included (see description below) as well as instructions on how to construct a lapbook, teacher directed assignments page and evaluation rubric.
