REVIEW, REVIEW, REVIEW… Better teachers know that review IS the key to mastery of critical skills!!!
Simple Social Studies REVIEW sheet from Columbus to the Civil War. Simple, but wide-ranging and fairly comprehensive for intermediate and above grades. Nothing fancy.... but I think very effective.
I use this both for students and for myself to keep me on track with review of critical common core skills that we just don't seem to get anywhere else. Each question is an opportunity for verbal expansion or addition from teacher.
I let students work together over a couple of days. We then review it together. An alternative is to let the students study the answer sheets, then assess.
Bottom Line is I made this because I needed it and I seem to get good results with it. Check out my other items…I don’t offer anything I don’t use myself!
