This product is to be used as a method to assess students understanding of key terms of the Reconstruction Era.
How the game works. Students use note cards or pieces of paper and write the terms on the paper. The student then places all the cards in front of them face up. The teacher then plays the PowerPoint. The definition of the term will display first. Students then grab the correct term and raise it in the air so the teacher and see. Repeat.
Variations: Make the game more competitive by awarding points to the first 3 people to put up the correct word. 1st-3pts, 2nd-2pts, 3rd-1pt. Student with most points wins.
Have students pair up with one set of the vocabulary cards. The first to grab the correct card wins the point. (You can rotate students after a few words or play the game several times)
The game instructions are in the notes on the first slide.
Thanks for looking.
