WW2 Rationing Carrot Cookie Recipe

WW2 Rationing Carrot Cookie Recipe

An easy to follow recipe for carrot cookies using ingredients that would have been available during WW2 when rationing was happening. The recipe is true to original recipes that people used at the time and is a fantastic way to link History with cookery/DT/food technology and bring rationing to life for the children. We did this in small groups and each child got to taste their cookie once it was cooked. They are surprisingly delicious!

Turn a boring biography report into a fun project with this step-by-step guide.

Turn a boring biography report into a fun project with this step-by-step guide.

Who can use it? Any student, any age, with a special benefit for reluctant readers, writers, or workers. What’s included? A step-by-step guide for students, a list of materials, explanation for the activity, and an example. Why is this useful? This is a fun twist on traditional biography reports that can be assigned in history, social studies, ELA, or writing classes. Instead of creating a typical report or poster, this is a much more hands-on activity that allows for creativity, while still including meaningful writing. You’ll be able to clearly assess a student’s comprehension with their completed project, and they’ll be engaged while creating it!

All about Canada: 13 Webquests (EAL, ESL, and LINC)

All about Canada: 13 Webquests (EAL, ESL, and LINC)

Get students engaged by having them use tablets, iPads, or desktops to learn key facts about the Canadian provinces and territories online! These one-page webquests direct students to a Canadian government website in order to answer questions about provinces and territories. Because websites are provincial government websites, you can be sure the information will be accurate, and the website will be around for a long time. The webquests are primarily aimed at English language learners from CLB 1-3, but it could also be used in elementary school classes. They could also be adapted for use at higher levels: while the language is simple, the content is not. Finally, the webquests could be used by newcomers to Canada who are preparing for the Canadian citizenship examination. Each webquest took my class about an hour to complete. For your convenience, answer keys have been provided. Feedback is greatly appreciated.

Stages of the Ages ™ Timeline Notebook 5000 BC to Present

Stages of the Ages ™ Timeline Notebook 5000 BC to Present

The "Stages of the Ages (TM) Timeline Notebook" was born out of the frustration within our own homeschool. We had tried several different timeline notebooks, and we had created some of our own. However, the same problems kept cropping up: lack of space to document everything that we wanted to document, crowded pages, inability of the timeline notebooks to "grow" with us as my daughter got older, and more. I wanted to be able to REALLY have only ONE timeline notebook for my daughter...and have it last all the way through the end of high school. This ebook format includes a downloadable PDF file.
