Introducing the Comic Notes by Instructomania!

The Comic Notes Experience

With our trademarked and exclusive Comic Notes, you’re not just getting a presentation; you’re unlocking an entire middle school history lesson complete with graphic organizers, worksheets, answer keys, and more!

To begin with, our innovative approach to teaching history transforms the classroom into a dynamic space. We encourage students to not only absorb information but also actively participate in their learning journey.

Our rigorous middle school history lessons are designed with key concept based learning in mind. We focus on the “big six” key concepts for social science – GRAPES. Each letter corresponds to a vital aspect of ancient and medieval civilizations:

  • G: Geography
  • R: Religion
  • A: Achievements
  • P: Politics/Government/Leadership
  • E: Economy
  • S: Social Classes

By using these key concepts as a guide, students learn about a variety of different countries and cultures. In addition, they also gain a deeper understanding of the attributes that allowed civilizations to prosper. This method encourages critical thinking and a holistic comprehension of historical events. Learn more about the GRAPES concept here in this blog post with free introduction activities and posters!

Our trademarked Comic Notes go beyond traditional teaching methods. Students have the opportunity to enhance their creative skills by drawing images that help solidify their understanding of historical concepts. This interactive approach fosters a love for learning and ensures that the material stays with them long after the lesson ends.

The Comic Notes history lessons and accompanying resources are not limited in their versatility! They can be used for partner work, exit tickets, homework, or independent learning.
