If you're not familiar with the game of Scoot, it's time you learned! It can be played with any type of task card that would have a quick answer. (There are other awesome types of task cards for skills that require more time and thinking, but that's not what Scoot is about!)
Brain research suggests that including movement will help the brain function more efficiently. Scoot has the children moving from place to place, which not only gets the brain going, but it makes the whole thing more fun for the kids! Individual cards are placed throughout the classroom, and the children move from spot to spot, performing the task, recording the answer on their answer sheet, then, moving onto the next card in the next part of the room when the teacher calls "Scoot"! After much scooting, the children return to their starting spot.
Once the 'cards' and sheets (enough for each student) are printed you can begin the scoot activity. One way to conduct scoot is to post the 'cards' around the classroom and have your students "scoot" around the room and try to answer each card, Another is to is to tape the 'cards to individual desks and have the students walk around each desk to try and solve the timeline. This Scoot makes students try to see just how important 'time' is within our history.
