This activity includes 30 slides of academic-related facts. These facts range from how students should study, how the brain learns, to facts about college admission, career readiness, SAT scores, etc. Each slide includes a "Did You Know?" fact and a follow up question. These questions can be used in class for quick-writes or discussions. Also included is a 3-2-1 handout. This handout asks students to provide 3 thoughts/opinions about the fact of the week, ask 2 questions and make 1 connection.
I love using this activity as a Monday warm-up. It sparks a discussion that lasts all week!
