These bellringers are created to make students think! I love how you can teach topics using bellringers which you may not get to teach a full lesson in a normal class period. They also make great introductions or reviews for lessons.
I love to use these bellringers in my classes to start each class. They should all take around 5 minutes. I usually have the students come in and work on the bellringers silently, then discuss them. These are designed to be used in a Middle School or High School Classroom.
You can use these bellringers in any order that you like. They are presented in a PowerPoint presentation to project for your class with animations included. These can even be used as Exit tickets for your class!
I have created bellringers to hit different Depth of Knowledge levels according to the Webb’s chart. Each question is either a level 1-3 question. Most of the bellringers build levels with each question. I have noticed that these bellringers have helped my students and their confidence with DBQ’s. I hope that your students are successful with these bellringers too!
