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.
In this assessment, the students were divided into groups of five people each. Each group was assigned a place (i.e. Berlin, Germany) based on the various videos listed in the 4.1 section. (We are still working to better incorporate these videos.) The assignment gives each person in the group a specific role and set of expectations. Students then created a "Board" (a tool found in Discovery Education Techbook) to present that nation and its information.
*This resource is ONLY the outline of the project and the assigned roles for Group Members. When we finish a demonstration Board, I'll post is as a Free download.
