Product details:

-Unit Cover:
Unit cover comes with the standards, benchmarks and a word bank with a list of typical vocabulary words covered throughout the unit.

-Anticipation Guide:
This pre/post-assessment has ten statements students will identify as either true or false and then explain. Students will then be asked to create a title page by writing the unit title and include three pictures with four colors. This provides the teacher an opportunity to discover what students know, don't know, and will learn.

Presentation: The slide presentation includes the ten statements and prompts to help guide a whole class discussion using the “think-pair-share” strategy.

Suggestion: make "True/False" cards for students to hold up and watch how all students are engaged with this fun and collaborative discussion lesson/assessment!
