Interactive notebook Indians of Desert Southwest

      As my students learn about more Indian tribal regions, I have them work on their interactive notebook pages.  Today's topic was Indian tribes of the Desert Southwest.  The kids learned about the Hopi, Zuni, Anasazi, Taos, and the Apache tribes.  Our discussion included climate, location, food, beliefs,  clothing, and shelter. 
     We glued together the base page and the top to illustrate the outside and inside of an adobe pueblo.

     After the page was glued together, the students added information to describe the illustrations.

     On a separate sheet, the climate regions are illustrated by the students.  This shows the climate region of the Desert Southwest.  The names of tribes are written in the space under the region.
      My 5th grade students like to work on this type note taking in addition to traditional note taking.

I would love to read your comments on this activity.  Would you use something like this in your class?
