Coloring Creativity in the Social Studies Interactive Notebook!

Help me give my students colored pencils to use in their interactive notebooks. My students use their interactive notebooks daily in class. The interactive notebook requires the use of colored pencils for the daily activities.

My Students

I teach 150 sixth grade students both regular as well as Gate (gifted) classes.

I teach five classes with nearly 30 students in each class, totaling 150 students.

I also have a homeroom class of close to 30 students. This area is diverse including military families, high poverty as well as higher income families. The majority of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

All of my students have a desire to learn.

Many students come from single families homes, foster families, and/or being raised by grandparents.

Our goal is to create a school-wide project-based, differentiated STEM learning environment that is conducive to fostering the 4C’s (communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity) within all students.

My Project

ALL students want to learn and all students NEED to learn, but not all students have the materials necessary to learn.

The colored pencils I have listed are essential in the daily use of the social studies interactive notebook.

Students will use the colored pencils for labeling annotations of primary and secondary sources, to create and color maps, charts, graphic organizers, and outlines for our units on ancient civilizations and human migrations around the world. The colored pencils will also be utilized for our STEM projects throughout the year.

Thank you in advance for helping our class. The students are more than willing to help each other, so it is awesome when they see that OTHERS who don't even KNOW them want to help them too.
