Students have been using their Visual Journals to explain various concepts this year in Social Studies. When given the choice to create a poster or Notebook file, most of them choose a Visual Journal page because they love to create pop up, and interactive elements.
I’ve posted a few examples of some very creative pages.
When learning about Local Government, this student drew little men to represent the MLA, Councillors, and Mayor. Each little man was a flap, and when opened explains the role of each in Local Government.
While learning about Confederation, this student created a Canadian Flag. On either side of the flag was a flap with information about the dates, the provinces, and why Confederation was important. A truly unique page!
