Continental vs. British Army Notebooking Pages




This is an excellent visual way for middle schoolers to record the advantages and disadvantages of both sides in the Revolutionary War.  This will lead to a great discussion as well on how the Continental Army actually pulled off an eventual win, as you can clearly see the British Army had a huge advantage.  The quarrel between England and France comes into play with this.

I hope you have gained some inspiration!

Gold Rush Notebooking Page


I used scrap construction paper to make this collage notebook page.  I think a change of colors could make this even more interesting, maybe purple for mountains, green for the treeline, etc.  My dd drew in the stick people.  She loves doing this, and she remembers a lot from history by placing them in the correct setting and giving them character by dressing them up appropriately and giving them beards, etc.

Regarding the information included, go ahead and use the books you are already reading to fill in the information and don't forget to label!  Get creative with your notebooking!
