This is a great introduction to Primary & Secondary Sources to begin the school year with.
First start by printing out the SCOOT! Questions on cardstock, then print the answer sheet – one per student. When we have done this activity outside I let students work in groups of three.
Scoot is a review game that we play all the time in my classroom! I place the cards around the room (and sometimes we actually get to do this outside) and students rotate to each card and answer the questions (of 32) on their answer sheet.
I general have students all start in different places so as to not have a 'herd mentality'. Then we review at the end of class. The kids love it, and it gets them up and moving!
Scoot is an activity that gives students a chance to move around while reinforcing subject matter. This version of SCOOT! Is covering the basics of Primary/Secondary Sources.. There are 32 cards, each having one fact asking if this item would be a primary or secondary source..
