Interactive Notebook- Inuit Indians

     Fifth grade Social Studies includes a unit on Native Americans.  I like to have the kids working with interactive notebooks.  We start with all the information printed out for the students.  This gets them used to making and working on the pages.

    The base page has all the information.
This page will have holes punched in it.

The top sheet will need to be cut out.

The next step is to glue the outside of the igloo on the base page by matching the X's.
My students last year really like learning about the Inuit Indians by opening and closing this igloo.

More interactive pages to come on the blog.

      The last part added to this section of the student notes is the student drawn illustrations of knowledge concerning the Inuit Indians. You can see that the students are interrupting the information in their own way.

                                     STUDENT        ILLUSTRATIONS

          I encourage my students to label their illustrations.  All this added information helps the children recall on tests and later in the future.  Many of my students have joined the Quiz Bowl teams when they reached 6th, 7th, and 8th grades.  They come back to say that they remember the Social Studies questions from 5th grade.  

       Today I linked up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five for Friday Linky.
Check out all the great blogs.  

Enjoy your day!
