We’ve made a great product even more child-interesting. Instead of just filling in workbook short answers, introduce your children to expressing their knowledge in complete sentences of their own. Basic questions directed to students help them investigate their state, create their own reports, and, if they wish, illustrate it with a picture. Besides reporting skills, your children will automatically practice language, penmanship, and library/encyclopedia/dictionary skills.
For the teacher, activity suggestions for each subject in the added unit study include art, music, language, reading, math, social studies/history, science/health, P.E., Bible, and field trips. Specific examples in each subject are drawn from various states to inspire the student’s research in his or her own state. A list of additional resources is included, as well as other information.
This First Report was written for the student to use to learn about the U.S. state in which he or she lives. Reports include History, Symbols, Public Life, Natural Resources, Geography, Climate, Transportation, Famous People, Well-Known Places, Cities, People and Jobs, and Culture and Events.
Using one topic per week, a packet will last an entire quarter. It is three-hole punched so it can be placed in a notebook. Included is a set of reproducible report forms with varying line heights. The Appendix contains an outline map of each state. Using the State History Chronicles Notebook with this unit study would make a great combination.
Written with Grades 3 and 4 in mind; Grades 1 and 2 can do these with parental direction. These are perfect for remedial work for Grades 5 through 8.
