Engaging activities that meet Wisconsin Academic Standards

The Student Activity Guide for "Wisconsin: Our State, Our Story" brings each chapter of this textbook alive for Wisconsin teachers and students! The Guide addresses Wisconsin Academic Standards across the board by providing a variety of activities for each topic. The choice of available activities means that the Guide will accommodate a wide range of teacher preferences and classrooms.

Primary sources at your fingertips

Wisconsin people and places move from the pages of history into the classroom through the primary sources that are incorporated into the activities. These include fascinating excerpts from letters, journals, and autobiographies as well as pictures, maps, and other documents presented in small, easy-to-teach chunks.

Activities for every learning style

While reproducible worksheets are a key component of the Guide, other crosscurricular activities make the textbook material accessible to all learners. These include drawing, hands-on work, modeling, simulation, computer/Internet, map-work, drama, games, and music. All the variety will stimulate student understanding!


Activity 6 from Chapter 2 of the printed Student Activity Guide was revised in September, 2010.
