Great powerpoint! It really helped me introduce the Navajo Code Talkers to my students. ( I did change just a few words for my 2nd graders) I couldnt find much about them in an "age approproiate" way...but is the Navajo Code Talkers really age appropriate for 2nd grade in the first place? haha! Thanks!!!!!
Thanks! Just perfect. I assume you are using the hated C-Scope curriculum. Why not make a powerpoint on W.E.B. DuBoise and the Women Air Service Pilots as well. I know that I would buy it. Most of the limited information you can find about these citizens are above a second grader's reading level.
I teach a K-first combo class. These centers were original, covered a myriad of concepts, and I was able to use them with my high, medium, and low students. Even my four kinders were able to do some of the activities! Worth every penny!
I had the students play in groups of two or three. I had them place the cards face down. Player one draws a card and chooses an answer. Then the other player checks the answer to key. If player one was correct then he/she rolls a dice to move on the board. If the answer is incorrect then players switch turns. Did you print out the free game board?
For the angry birds fraction of a set, do you print them out in colour for each student? I only have B&W copying at my school so I'm not sure how I can have the kids determine the colour of each bird.
Thanks for any tips! Looks fun!
If you have a projector, perhaps projecting the color image from the computer onto a screen may help.
Another idea is to have the kids quickly color in the handout before they work on it. My students are really familiar with the game and know the characters better than I do. Hope this helps.
