We created this activity set to ensure that the correct definitions are learned in thoughtful, fun and engaging ways. The activities in this mini-bundle are completely textbook independent. It comes with:
1. Two definition sheets with words defined right in the assignment! The sheets are divided into the events leading to the Civil War and the Civil War. The 12-16 words on each sheet are both academic and content driven. Students are required to make meaning by re-phrasing the definition provided, create a synonym or antonym, and make a connection with other words in the list by drawing or writing (an example is included on the sheet).
Two alternative formats are also provided, a basic definitions format and a format based on Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence theory.
2. An IN OTHER WORDS vocabulary matching game for the Civil War. The game comes with 16 words in pre-formatted cards, teacher directions, student directions and a winning team time display sheet.
3. Two FUN review games on paper or PowerPoint driven.The Term Play Game! is a password vocabulary class game that uses the definitions for students to guess the vocabulary word. It's easy to operate and engaging! In the second game called Wager This! students wager points and write down answers based on definitions. Points are issued for correct answers.My students love these games!
4. TWO content and academic vocabulary quizzes in both WORD and PDF. One quiz covers the events leading to Civil War and the other covers the Civil War. Includes answer key! In both quizzes students match definitions and infer meaning of words from short passages. Answer key included!
The definitions sheet and quiz comes in WORD and PDF so you can edit or add any words you would like.
