A Day in History – Investigation Station | September 9 – California becomes a State
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.
Studying penguins or perhaps animals of the arctic? This cute shape book is ready for students to use to publish there own stories, reports or poems about penguins!
I’ve created pages with both dotted-dashed lines as well as single lines so that you can use what best fits the level of your students.
Students will love this creative project. This , & resource will give students templates to create two U.S. President flip books – one for and one for. 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.
