American History Part 2 Notebook Pages

Just finished my notebook pages that correlate with Sonlight Core E®.  I am obligated to mention these pages nor this author are affiliated with Sonlight®.  These pages can easily be used with any American history studies, though. 

This set bloated its way out to 90 pages!  The girls and I certainly won't use them all, but I wanted to have them available just in case.

These are simple pages with colorful graphics (that could certainly be printed in black and white) with lines to summarize history readings, and some pages have space to draw if you wish.  Sometimes we don't even use these drawing areas.  At the end of the document is a page with lines only.  Once in a while, the girls are required to write more than the lines allow on the first notebook page with the graphics

Hopefully these are useful to someone out there!  I had to separate the file, as it was so huge.

Gold Rush Notebook Pages

From the California Gold Rush in 1849 to the Klondike Gold Rush in 1898, these interactive notebook pages summarize in a (hopefully) fun way.

There are 33 pages to work with here.  These pages don't have a lot of open-ended pages, but a lot of fill in the blanks and some 3D manipulative components.

I made these pages for my 5th and 6th graders, but there just isn't a lot of work.  I realize they could do more, but these pages are for history and not writing class, so I decided to make them less work for them.  The age range for these pages widens because of this, so I'll let you be the judge of when to use them.

Let me know of any errors and if you want to share, send your friends back to this post.  Thanks for that!

Inspiration Corner: Language Arts Notebooking

  • Get crafty with this fun and creative poetry page for your language arts notebook.
  • This is an idea to get some creative adjectives flowing from mind to notebook page.  I included it not to print, but this would be an excellent homemade notebook page!
  • The sky is the limit for the inside of this fun little bat book.  Again, summarizing with a fun twist!
  • Give your student descriptive words of characters in a current book on a card and have them find sentences to support that trait.  Then store the cards in a character analysis pocket.
  • Here's a freebie!  I created copywork and picture study pages for my upper elementary girls.  The sentences are in print, but I required them to translate the sentences into cursive.  These could be for early elementary as well since they are in print.

I hope you've found some inspiration here today!
