I am linking up with Collaboration Cuties for Must Read Mentor Texts. This week we are focusing on Social Studies.
We have been reading How To Build Your Own Country.
The students have been loving to read how countries are formed as we are "creating" our own countries. Some "countries" in my class include: Manland, Frozenia, and Shapetopia. I will share our projects when we finish them up after Spring Break. For now here are a few of the pages.
The book is written in small chunks that can be used individually for class read alouds, in small groups, or independently. It has been one of the most engaging non-fiction texts I have found!
