Hands On History Supplement
Many students learn better when their hands are busy. Popular history curricula often includes hands on activities.
You can create your own hands on activities or purchase supplements.
A nice addition for a study of American History is the God Bless America coloring book by Multnomah.
Click the link above to see examples of the coloring pages. You will notice that the pages are not complicated, but are classy, with quotes from American history.
On the back of each coloring page is information about the quote and who said it. The book covers a variety of people and quotes: Founding Fathers, historic documents, patriotic songs, or other American heroes (astronauts, generals,etc).
Even though it is called an 'adult' coloring book, I know it would be great for students of a variety of grade levels.
In the back of the book is a link to a playlist to set the mood as well as a quiz to see what your student learned from the book.
This coloring book could be for students who like to be doing something during read aloud time or as a supplement to reinforce a time period or person being studied.
The pages are nice and thick, with images that your student will love. You might even find yourself tempted to color a page. Go ahead and indulge your creativity!
What are your favorite history supplements?
I received this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review.
