I'm finishing up an Eastern Hemisphere class at our co-op this year, and this is the page we created in class as we learned about various aspects of Oceania. This is very versatile and could be used with any culture study. I used a children's and student's atlas to read from during class, then the students chose which pieces of information they wanted to highlight in their sheets. You could require more writing than I did here, but our focus was on the information and not the writing in this class. They turned out absolutely beautiful. Here are a few examples from the co-op class!

Next up, an idea for middle schoolers. To the right is a rifle, and the cloud in the middle is the gunpowder cloud. Various arrows coming out of the cloud depict all the changes the American Revolution jumpstarted.
I really liked this idea for 6th through 8th, and the graphic organizer helps to retain it in memory and is interesting to look at.

One of our daughter's assignments from co-op was to present information about a specific tribe. I'm always looking for creative ways for our kids to show what they've learned, so we came up with this. We've marked off sections for the things we learned, including kids, food, home, and words. DD8 illustrated it all and decided what to include and where to put it.
