FLIP CHARTS are your friends!
My 5th graders enjoy making flip charts to sum up information. They add illustrations to help remember specific information.
To wrap up the Southern Colonies a flip chart was perfect.
Each student received a sheet that had this information for the Southern Colonies. The paper was flipped over to the blank side and folded in half. The flaps were opened and then each was folded into the middle fold.
This is the outside of the flip chart decorated and glued onto a piece of loose leaf paper.
The inside of the paper was divided into four sections. Then the section for the Carolinas was divided in half.
The students wrote the name of each colony in the correct section to match the outer flaps. The following information was added by the students.
Founder, Reason for founding, Economy, and Geography.
I let the kids go to it. I am always very impressed with their work.
Please leave a comment if you get a spare moment. I love reading readers thoughts.
