PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These Big Skills Review Lessons are designed to review three basic skills that make the study of social studies and history easier if understood and mastered. The three skills are: Cause and Effect, Chronological Order, and Compare and Contrast. Mastering the three skills will also help students during testing sessions.
I believe it is important to review the (3) skills at the beginning of the school year. At most, the review lessons should take 1-2 days of class time. Historic timeframe for this unit is colonial and early America but the skills taught are transferrable to any era. Substitute your own pictures to reuse the worksheets with other topics.

1.) The “Big Skills” Chart provides definitions for each of the skills. Make a Transparency of the completed chart or project it on smart board, etc. and go over it with the students. Give the students a blank chart to fill in during the class discussion of the three skills. The activity will take one period of class or less.

2.) The (3) skills activities can be handed out individually or all at once after the students complete the chart. The students should use their completed “Big Skills” Chart to work on the (3) activities. The activities can be worked on in class or as homework.
