Review Activities using Foldables

Engaging Students with Foldables for U.S. History to 1865

It contains instructional activities using foldable templates that were modeled after the folding techniques of Dinah Zike. These models correlate to specific Virginia SOL objectives and essential knowledge for U.S. History to 1865.
