Category Description for History Pockets:

Supplement your elementary studies of history with memorable activities and a personalized book of projects and the facts they’ve learned. Each book is divided up into a series of units, each unit representing one pocket in their book. Each unit contains several parts, including an overview page for you, and then a title for the pocket, a “Fast Facts” bookmark or picture dictionary cards, an “About…” page or small booklet to read and discuss on the topic, an “Art Reference Page” (for the upper levels), and various activities to complete and include in your pocket. For example, in the Native Americans book, in the Tlingit unit, there’s a title for the pocket along with several picture dictionary cards, a fact sheet, a booklet with illustrations for the child to color, and then two craft projects - creating a potlatch mask that the Tlingits wear to special occasions, as well as a totem pole layer book. A selection of pocket contents from an upper grade book such Ancient Egypt in the “Daily Life” unit would include a pocket title, ‘Fast Facts” bookmark with facts about life in ancient Egypt, an “About Daily Life” sheet to read, an art page featuring ancient Egyptian clothing, and activities including dressing a figure in ancient Egyptian clothing, making a necklace of six important Egyptian symbols, and making a small book on ancient Egyptian dwellings. Most projects, patterns, and everything else to be included in the pockets are reproducible for your own use. All the pieces you need in this book are included for your use, and there are very few (if any) time-consuming projects, as most of them require only a paper pattern copied from the book and used, making this an easy way to combine some hands-on extra fun and personality into your history study, without expending a lot of time and effort on projects, for moms running a little short on time.

How long does it take to complete one book from the 4-6 grade level? How much time do you spend on it per day or week? Thank you!

BEST ANSWER: We do one pocket per week during the unit we are working on. That takes roughly 7 weeks. Each pocket has five or six activities that vary in time commitment needed. Coloring the pocket label and reading the non-fiction page may take ten minutes or less. Creative writing or artwork may take 30 minutes. Typically I have my student complete activities independently unless help is needed or we want to do the activity together for fun. I complete the booklet when all the folders are done so we can sit together and review while she glues the pocket labels and cover in place. I do not use the evaluation at the end. We have completed Moving West and Life in Plymouth Colony and will be completing Ancient Egypt this coming year. We have used the preschool ones as well. These keep my kids occupied without being busy work.
