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.

Sarah (2)

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.

Confederation Confederation Open

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!
