I don’t recall how I happened upon this site, but I’m glad I did. Activity Village is a huge site devoted to crafts and activities for children. You could easily spend hours perusing all they have available (ask me how I know!). Everything I’ve seen is marvelous, but what really makes me full of glee is their FREE notebooking pages.
Simply type “notebooking” in the search field, and Eureka! You have found it: the motherlode of notebooking pages. My favorites so far are the famous people notebooking pages, which are arranged alphabetically by last name and also sorted into categories, including:
- United States Historical Figures, including presidents
- Famous Scots
- British Kings and Queens
- Irish Men and Women
- Famous Australians and Famous New Zealanders
Printables include lined notebooking pages, coloring pages, flash cards, mini booklets, origami booklets, and writing frames. Not all historical figures offer each printable option, but still it’s nice to have some choices in what to use in lessons. Plus, you’re likely to find something for all ages, from preschool through high school.
You can find numerous other topics as well, such as:
- The Olympics
- The Titanic
- Chinese New Year
- Ancient Greece
- Different Countries
- The Mayflower
Not only are pages easy to locate, they are also easy to use. Each page is a pdf. You can either print it directly from the website, or you can save it to your computer so it’s always at your fingertips. And best of all, they are completely and totally FREE! No subscriptions, no payments, nothing.
My family is new to notebooking, so I am not keen to spend much money here at the outset. Also, we tend to use notebooking pages for written narrations, so plain notebook paper would do. But thanks to Activity Village, my children can enjoy using quality notebooking pages to gussy up their work, and I can enjoy both the quality of the pages AND the savings in my wallet!
