Help your students identify and organize the essential concepts for this era of history! Each note page is visually organized to support understanding and help make connections. The design also makes it easy for them to locate and return to previously learned concepts for STAAR prep, or other routine review/application activities.
Exploration & Colonization is part of a larger set of Interactive Student Notes (ISN’s) that cover the Colonial Era to Reconstruction. The set is designed to serve as a basic foundation to your course content. Each unit contains structured notes and embedded activities, which are perfect for providing initial direct instruction on each topic or concept. Extension activities of your choice can and should be built in around the topics that call for additional practice or inquiry, depending on the needs of your students.
Both a printable and Google Drive compatible version (fillable Google Slides) and and an answer key are included in this download.
My resources are closely aligned with the 2019 Texas TEKS, but can be helpful for anyone teaching early American History to the middle grades.
This unit is also part of a discounted U.S. History to 1877 Interactive Notes BUNDLE for the entire year!
