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 4.3 but it could be used anytime during Chapter 4 on Europe.
This assignment can NOT be used without the Discovery Education Techbook. The questions accompany the media clip "Cultures of Europe" directly.
In this activity, I showed the kids Bloom's Taxonomy, and after they viewed the media clip, I asked them to create leveled questions about the video for a partner. Then, they traded and answered each other's questions. Very simple activity that could be used on a Friday after a heavy week.
