What is it?

The Oklahoma Scrapbook is a 290-page trip planner, learning tool, and memory book, created for families to use before, during, and after exploring the state of Oklahoma.

As a trip planner, the Oklahoma Scrapbook offers a list of over 150 travel destinations located in the state of Oklahoma. Each entry includes a brief description of the destination, as well as its hours of operation, admission charges, address and/or directions, and contact information. Each destination is listed by geographic area (Green Country, Frontier Country, etc.) as well as alphabetically and by city/town.

   

As a learning tool, the Oklahoma Scrapbook enhances learning by recommending topics to discuss, books to read, and activities to do that are related to each destination. For instance, when visiting the 45th Infantry Division Museum, the topics suggested are World War II, Korean War, Germany, and Hitler. A list of books and activities follow that relate specifically to these topics.In cases where two or more destinations focus on the same topic, the Oklahoma Scrapbook suggests alternative topics instead. For instance, Harn Homestead and the Oklahoma Territorial Museum both focus on the Land Runs of Oklahoma. Therefore, the topics suggested for Harn Homestead are Land Runs and lawyers, while the topics suggested for the Oklahoma Territorial Museum are wheat, peanuts, libraries, and librarians. Alternative topics are not the main focus of the destination, but they do relate to the destination in some way. This not only avoids repetition but provides additional learning about Oklahoma and other topics as well.

  

Over time, the Oklahoma Scrapbook becomes a cherished memory book of your travels in Oklahoma. As you visit each destination, place photos in your scrapbook. (In cases where a museum will not allow photography, post cards can be use instead.) Write in the date of your visit, who went with you, your comments about the trip, where you ate, and what souvenirs you bought. Comment on what you have learned and liked about each area in general. Over time, you’ll have a complete memory book of your travels in Oklahoma to enjoy with family and friends.

How to Use the Oklahoma Scrapbook:

After purchasing, download the PDF document and save it to a CD or DVD for safe keeping. You may then either assemble the complete scrapbook at one time or print individual destination pages, as needed. After printing, punch each page with a 3-hole punch (or insert the completed page into a clear, vinyl page protector for added protection). Store the pages in a sturdy, 3-ring binder. (I recommend a 2”, Avery -Dennison Heavy Duty View Presentation Binder. You can insert a copy of the cover in the front.)

At the end of the book, there is a blank destination page that you may reproduce in order to add destinations not included in the book.

After your trip, attach photographs to the appropriate spots on your destination page. (In cases where a museum will not allow photography, postcards may be substituted instead.) Write in the date of your visit, who went with you, your comments about the trip, where you ate, and what souvenirs you bought. Comment on what you have learned and liked about each area in general.
