This product provides 92 warm-ups (bellringers) for AP® U.S. Government classes! The warm-ups include thought provoking questions, content review, FRQ prep questions, and even some practice multiple choice questions. Open each day with a prompt to engage your students and help them practice the skills they will need for the test. Warm-ups come with keys when appropriate. The warm-ups are organized by unit and I have included a table of contents that will allow you to easily identify and use these warm-ups in your classroom no matter what order you teach your content. I have also included a template so you can add to your collection of your warm-ups/bellringers. These prompts are simple to project in presentation form or print for students in your classroom. You can also use prompts as exit slips or review. I use them during the first few minutes of class to get my students engaged while I take attendance and check homework- it's a great classroom routine!
BEFORE YOU BUY: Please note that this set of warm-ups already includes the slides in my regular U.S. Government Warm-Up set plus 20 extras to specifically address AP content. If you teach regular U.S. Government ONLY, you may want to purchase that set of 72 warm-ups at a reduced price. Click here to purchase the set for regular U.S. Government. I just want to clarify what is in each set, so don't buy both and end up with repeat content. Please feel free to ask a question in my Q&A section if you would like clarification.
*Please note: The 92 warm-ups come in PDF format. You can easily play them as a slideshow by clicking "view" and then "slideshow" if you have a Mac or "view" and then "full screen mode" if you have a PC. If you would like to create your own additional warm-ups, I have included an editable pptx format that matches the PDF theme.
