This freebie includes 6 warm-ups (bellringers) for the Foundations of American Democracy unit of any U.S. Government class and is a great product for the start of the year! The warm-ups include thought provoking questions and content review, and are designed to get your students thinking about important course themes. These make perfect exit slips as well! Warm-ups come with keys when appropriate. I use these during the first few minutes of class to get my students engaged while I take attendance and check homework- it's a great classroom routine! If you like what you see, check out my full warm-up/bellringer class sets for U.S. Government and AP® U.S. Government!! In addition, I also offer a full-year set of U.S. History warm-up/bellringers. The links are listed below.
*Please note: The warm-ups come in PDF format. You can easily play them as a slideshow by clicking "view" and then "slideshow" if you have a Mac or "view" and then "full screen mode" if you have a PC.
