Whoa!! Three posts in one week!!! Shocking, right???
Well, you asked and I have delivered! So many of you have been so sweet with your feedback of our Causes of the American Revolution and Events of the American Revolution nonfiction articles! And then, you asked for more S.S. units!
Well, here is another unit! New Nation and Government! Take a look at what's included:
I read over the article (beforehand) and decide how I want to break it up into sections. It's USUALLY by paragraph, but sometimes I chunk more together depending on how much meat each paragraph has. I could have chunked all the legislative section together, all the executive together, and all the judicial together, but it was too much information. I wanted to switch colors so the different aspects of each branch stood out. So for each section I find important, I change the color of the marker or colored pencil.
Whenever possible, we draw pictures. But sometimes, like with government, it's difficult to draw a picture. So, we include words.
If you have any questions about how we do this, just let us know! We'd be happy to go into more detail!!
If you can use these nonfiction articles for your New Nation and Government unit, you can check them out in our TpT Store.
I hope everyone enjoys the 4th of July tomorrow!! A big thank you goes out to all of the men and women who serve our country to keep us free!!
