This freebie includes three activities to get your kiddos started with the Grade 4 Ontario Social Studies Unit- Early Societies 3000 BCE-1500 CE)
The first activity is a discussion cube that students can roll and have meaningful discussions with a partner or small group. They are able to share their knowledge of early societies with some diagnostic questions.
The second activity are discussion cards. You can use these cards for partner talks or whole class discussions. They are great to see what your students already know about the early societies and how they compare to their current day society. They are included in colour as well as black & white.
The third activity ties into the inquiry piece of the unit. They are topic cards for early societies. I use them on chart paper and have students move to each topic to generate questions with a partner or small group. Then we use the questions to help guide the rest of our inquiries!
Thanks and enjoy! :)
