A cardsort is a manipulative that hands-on learners will love (view this http://goo.gl/kHJVMD). This literacy building strategy begins with the reading of an article (included) about the Manhattan Project and the decision to drop the first atomic weapons on Japan. After reading, students are given an envelope with 13 cards that must be organized to demonstrate an understanding of the content. They use what they know and the article to sort the words and phrases from general to specific. The activity ends with students documenting their learning on a pre-designed template (also included) and four formative assessment questions.
The cardsort activity has everything you will need. This is a great two day lesson and I have also included a brief video tutorial to guide you through the process. To save you more time, an answer template is also part of this package.
