Warm Up Activities for American History
A complete school year's worth (over 120 slides!
) of daily warm up or bell-ringer questions for American History! The slides start with Jamestown and the early colonies and continue through to 9/11, the Patriot Act, President Obama and even the 2016 election!
Each slide contains 3-4 short questions to engage students, reflect on past learning, and segue into your new lesson. All slides contain engaging graphics for visual learners and utilize a variety of questioning styles. The slides could also act as an excellent review activity after a unit or as exit tickets for EVERY CLASS throughout the year.
One of the best classroom management strategies I have found is to have these slides projected as students enter the room so that they are immediately engaged in learning. It gives you the first 5 minutes of class to take attendance while they are on task completing the warm up.
With 120 total slides based on state and Common Core literacy Standards, this fantastic resource for your American History class will last you all year long! An answer key is now included with answers in the notes section of every slide!
