My Project

This past year, I have noticed that students do not have a solid grasp of the geography of our country, yet they LOVE map work. I would love to fill my walls with more maps relating to the topics they study. They also love more interactive history lessons where they are immersed in the time period in which they are studying. I am always looking for new lessons and ideas on how to bring U.S. History to life for them so they can relate to how it affects them today so I have included a few books with interactive notes and lessons. Finally, my classroom could always use a little extra organization since we are always working on creative projects so I have included a organizational items to help my students.
