  • A three-ring notebook for each student and page-protector sleeves for the scrapbook they will begin making in this unit.Get 3-ring notebooks with the clear sleeve on the front cover so you can make a decorative page for each student--or they can make their own.  A good title is "World Explorations".   (Use these "scrapbooks" during the rest of the year.  Add important people and events.)
