My daughter really got into the first flag and the story of Betsy Ross. We conjured up this page together. She wanted to draw it, and I wanted some good information on it. We used our reading selections for the information. :)

After a selection of reading, this is the page we came up with. I asked her to dictate to me the main part of the story, which is what I've written on the top. Then she illustrated her dictation. Comparing and contrasting worked well here.
You can compare and contrast any reading selection and use a page like this. Homemade notebooking is awesome and engaging!

I searched online for an Underground Railroad page we could make, and I saw a lantern like this, but it wasn't homemade and had typed material in the windows, which would have been great for a middle school project. I needed something for 3rd through 5th, though.
After thinking on it awhile, I decided to highlight some prominent vocabulary associated with the Underground Railroad. The quilt is actually a "reproduction" of real code quilts made by slaves. For "Wade in the Water," I drew a stick dog with question marks and the slaves' footprints with the slaves hiding in the bush.
PS: Contrary to my family's belief, this isn't a Tardis from Dr. Who! Haha!
