Through 4 stations, students will learn about verbs in a whole new way. Get into character, and get ready to be lead archaeologist on a live dig site! Two levels of learning are included in this pack. Level 1 is working only with action verbs (past, present & future tenses), and Level 2 adds in helping/being verbs. All printables included are given in B&W and full color versions.
Below are the activities included in this pack:
Veloci-verb- students will visit an archaeological site and excavate verb skeletons, making record of which verbs they find.
After training in the VNA lab, students will sort the bones of the verb species they found into past, present & future action verbs, as well as optionally, helping verbs (in level 2 worksheets).
In Level 1 of Sleeping Giants, students will play charades with dinosaur themed verbs to help them blend in when the verbs are out stomping around at night. In Level 2, students will learn a helping verb song sung to the tune of Jingle Bells so that they can join in the chorus when some of the verbs call out to each other in the night. Themed lyric sheets are included.
Lastly, students will create their own exhibit on a species of verb that they discovered when the mini unit is finished using Makerspace materials, technology, or whatever resources are available.
