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 resource is an activity assignment based on the one from the Techbook for Chapter 4.2. It asks the students to analyze the changes in the environment of Europe over the course of time (following the information presented in the student text). The directions for the assignment are:
Directions: As you read the text and view the media, complete the Change Over Time graphic organizer below. In the Before Column, describe conditions in Europe before human activity. In the After Column, describe conditions in Europe after human activity. In the Change section, describe how Europe changed over time as a result of human activity.
