Looking for a way to breathe new life into your history studies? These supplemental workbooks are designed to engage children in the learning process through a variety of think and learn activities. Each book has a similar layout, beginning with a brief introductory note on the subject and directions for use of book. Colonial Life, Famous Explorers, and Pioneer Life include eight units each and are similar in format. First the student reads a 2-3 page summary of the topic, then answers comprehension style questions and answers. Answers to these questions are found on the back of the question page. Next are the "creative questions" which are designed according to Bloom's Taxonomy of higher level thinking. Then the students have a variety of learning activities to chose from (six options, three are recommended to complete). Learning activities vary but may include creative writing, illustrating, design or the creation of something new to support the story. Students are also encouraged to complete a research project. Step by Step directions are integrated in the back of the book and include Bloom's Taxonomy overview and how to write a question at the higher level thinking to guide research, how to use and organize note cards, plagiarism, bibliography, steps to complete a research project and presentation guidelines including oral presentation tips. A check list is also included to keep students on track and organized. Native Americans includes five sections. Each section includes a brief summary about the region and is followed by two stories about tribes living in the region; for a total of five to six pages of reading. Discussion questions with answers, creative questions and the research project format is similar to rest of the series. Reproducible for individual classroom. Black & white illustrations. SC. 100 pgs. ~ Deanne
