Our district adopted the Discovery Education Social Studies Techbook this year, found on the DiscoveryEd online portal. As the trainers for this Techbook even say, it is "not a curriculum" but rather "a resource." To that end, my colleagues and I have had to create a variety of worksheets to support the activities in the Techbook as well as quiz questions for reading passages that can be uploaded to Socrative or Kahoots or even used on Google Forms. Some of the resources have been retyped from the original pdf format into a Word doc or spreadsheet with minor format and directions changes. ALL resources I have created are for Grade 7, World Geography chapters TO ACCOMPANY the DiscoveryEd online Techbook. There is no direct text from the chapters themselves. For that, you will need an account with Discovery Education.
This particular resource connects to Grade 7 World Geography Techbook Chapter 1.2. The activity asked students to collect data on various countries and make comparisons as well as contrasts. However, the original worksheet did not work for the kids as it did not have enough clear directions. We recreated the worksheet with directions broken into chunks and more space for work.
**There is no Answer Key as the assignment's answers will vary greatly depending on what countries the small groups OR individual students choose to work with.
