Great ice breaker for back to school for American History students. Appropriate for middle school and high school.
Students create a tent card using a menu of American History related titles and events to create a fun hero name. While breaking the ice and getting to know each other a little better, students will also get a sneak peak at of events and places they will study during the coming school year.
Topics are specific to colonial through reconstruction eras.
Activity takes at least 15 minutes, but can easily stretch longer with more time for group interaction.
