Use these Fact Towers for engagement and a challenge or use them as extensions for a concept you are teaching your students. A grading rubric is not provided with this product. They are called Fact Towers for the simple reason that when students are done pasting the facts, they somewhat resemble a tower of facts. Some of the Fact Towers will be more challenging than others. In the end, the purpose of these is to engage your students in the learning process.
It is up to you if you allow your students to use other resources (internet, books, etc.) to find the answers. You can print off the answer keys, cut them up, and then either staple them together or leave them as single handouts so your students can use them. Once in a while students may find that some facts belong under other categories or topics. If this occurs, feel free to do some additional research and have a discussion with your students- after all, they may just be right!
