A Day in History – Investigation Station is a series of fun sleuthing research activities based on a single event on a specific day in history! This resource focus is on California. Investigation ideas include the ‘Gold Rush’, the Compromise of 1850, the state’s long and rich history, the geography and the natural resources.
Students will learn about an event and be given several topics from which to choose to ‘investigate’. After some exploration, students are asked to write what they have discovered and name used sources.
So…with each lesson, students will:
▪ (Read) Learn one ‘On this Day in History’ fact.
▪ (Investigate) Take a related topic and explore it through the use of different forms of media (i.e. books, internet).
▪ (Write) Summarize and write what they have discovered. This also should include the recording of sources.

4 – Fourth of July coloring pages to celebrate Independence Day in the U.S.A!
#1 – Happy 4th of July with cute flag
#2 – God Bless the USA

This resource includes the words of 24 traditional Christmas Carols (and a little history about them as well).
Students will love this creative project. This cross-curricular, Language Arts & Social Studies resource will give students templates to create two U.S. President flip books – one for George Washington and one for Abraham Lincoln. A great February activity around Presidents’ Day or when discussing Washington and/or Lincoln’s birthdays.
This can be used for 1st, 2nd or 3rd Grades. For younger students, you can opt to give them facts for each president and allow them to choose which ones to write in the books. For older students, you can also choose to have students read a passage that you already have or to do a little research on their own to find facts. Students should write at least 5 facts on each flip book as each will have 5 pages.
Here is a quick and easy, one page reference which lists all of the Dolch sight words for: Pre-primer, Primer, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades.
