For each chapter in the Student Edition, an ELL Teaching Tip, an introductory chapter activity, an activity for each lesson, illustrated word cards, a Quick Tour of the chapter, an activity page, an assessment, and answers are provided.
The Ohio Adventure is a multi-media textbook program for 4th grade Ohio Studies. The program is based on Ohio's NEW Academic Content Standards for social studies and teaches civics, history, geography, and economics. The student edition places the state's historical events in the larger context of our nation's history.
The Ohio Adventure Student Guide includes five activity pages for each lesson in the Teacher Guide: Activator, Key Vocabulary, Comprehension Strategy, Writing Portfolio, and Review Activity. These activities support the material in the Student Edition and promote critical thinking.
The Ohio Adventure Teacher Guide supports the Student Edition with multiple lesson activities focused on social studies, reading comprehension, vocabulary, writing, online research, and cross-curricular topics. It also includes resource lists for each lesson, thumbnails of accompanying Student Guide pages, chapter assessments, an answer key, and a set of Teacher Tools (maps, graphic organizers, and lesson support). The program is designed to support state standards as well as common core standards.
