Product Description
So much fun and a way to differentiate instruction as well? No joke, this bundle can help you with your activity sessions!

These activity templates are based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory. Each of them includes student roles, simplified steps, an area for you to input the content you want your students to work with, appropriate time limits for each step to keep your students progressing with the assignment, and a rubric. These templates are easy for middle school students to follow and provide consistency throughout the year because the format of each activity is similar.

There is no teaching duration selected because some activities will take 30 minutes, some will take 45 and others will be an hour. Much of this depends on the amount of content you want your students to use in their activities. I estimated the pages to be about 150. Each template is at least two pages long.

I created these during my nine years of teaching middle school social studies and SPED. I also co-taught with ELL and SPED teachers as the content teacher and taught one class of honors social studies. I wanted to create a system that would help me plan for differentiated instruction work session activities quickly and provide for student choice. Because I have received great responses from teachers of 4th and 5th grade on the individual items I sell that are a part of this bundle, I have decided to offer it to 4th and 5th grade as well. Please note that I have never taught elementary school but my son who is in 5th grade could complete most of them and he is in special education for multiple speech and language problems.

Not only will you get the 55 activity templates and rubrics but you will also get a student choice sheet that will help you plan for the amount of copies needed of each activity and allow you to group appropriately. Also included is a Multiple Intelligence test that focuses on the original Multiple Intelligences that Dr. Howard Gardner identified. The last bonus in this bundle is a Professional Development PowerPoint presentation called "Using the Multiple Intelligence Theory to Differentiate Instruction for Work Session Activities." It goes through the Multiple Intelligence Theory and then shows you how you can differentiate instruction for your work session activities using the activity templates provided.

These activity templates have been successfully used in social studies, biology, language arts and health classes in the middle school environment.

This is the first bundle I have put together and it includes all 55 of my activity templates and rubrics. If you bought these individually, you would pay $82.50. I am offering them as a bundle for only $15.00 which is quite a bargain since it drops the individual price down to $.27! You could save $67.00 by purchasing this bundle! I used the 7-zip file manager to create the zip file that was recommended by teacherspayteachers.

Warning: If you are a teacher that likes a quiet classroom, many of these templates are not for you. These are cooperative learning activities and tend to get a little noisy because the students are engaged in an activity that they chose to do. You will need to be out from behind your desk moving from group to group to ensure they are staying on task and progressing in a timely manner even though a timekeeper and taskmaster are part of the student roles. We all know middle school students can get distracted by social events so you must stay on top of them!
