A strong knowledge of vocabulary is one of the most important factors for success on the AP U.S. History test. Vocabulary squares are a great way to teach, learn, reinforce, and review all of the vocabulary terms students might encounter on the exam because they go beyond having students just define the terms. Instead, students define each term, draw it, and engage in one of several "other stuff" options such as creating a mnemonic, listing synonyms, etc. to help make the word and its meaning stick. These vocabulary squares are very helpful for front-loading the vocabulary before each chapter. They can also be used for homework, an activity as students read, or as bell ringer/first 5 work. And of course they are great for test review!
This product can also be purchased as a bundle that includes all vocabulary terms for each of the 9 AP U.S. History periods. Save money by buying them all together here!
