Life in Plymouth Colony Review and Giveaway by Evan-Moor
I was given the wonderful opportunity to review Life In Plymouth Colony by Evan-Moor for Grades 1-3. If you've been keeping up with me at Susie Homeschooler then you know that I use a lot of their curriculum. It's easy to use, organized, and is correlated to state standards. I feel confident that my child (aka Batman) is getting exactly what he needs and more when I teach using Evan-Moor.
A few weeks ago Batman and I worked on the History Pocket Native Americans. It was such a wonderful learning experience for Batman. He loved it and so did I. Check out that review at http://susiehomeschooler.blogspot.com/. We were both excited to start the lesson on the Pilgrims especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner.
Each of the pockets contains:
- a reproducible pocket label
- four dictionary words and pictures
- a fact sheet of background information for the teacher
- a reproducible student information booklet complete with illustrations
- arts and crafts projects, plus writing activities
Evaluation forms are provided at the end of the book to give students a chance to reflect on all they have learned.
The eight pockets about Pilgrims and their way of life are:
- Voyage to the New World
- The New World
- Building a Village
- Home Sweet Home
- The Family
- Working in Plymouth Colony
- Going to School
- What Did the Pilgrims Give Us?
Here Batman is organizing facts about the journey to the New World by the
Pilgrims in chronological order.
This is an easy booklet to put together. It takes only a few minutes and then you can start your lessons.
What you'll need:
History Pocket Life in Plymouth Colony Book
9 pieces of 12"x18" construction paper
Crayons or markers
Yarn or string
Batman loved working on his History Pockets and has been learning a lot about the Pilgrims. I caught him last night reading his book and playing with his "Pilgrims" There are great stories in each pocket to read, crafts, and a neat picture dictionary to review words that you learned in the story.
