These 43 entrance and exit slips will capture the attention of your students and will keep them engaged throughout your lesson. These slips can be completed at any point in the lesson, as a way to engage your students when the bell rings, as a main activity of the lesson or as a way to wrap up your lesson in a meaningful way. The slips are a great way for you to assess your students' knowledge about the content and their critical thinking skills.
Each of the entrance and exit slips focus on Mesoamerica, mainly the Maya, Aztecs and Incas. Each slip comes with clip art that makes learning even more interesting and enjoyable! Students are asked questions that give them the opportunity to understand the point-of-view of Maya, Aztecs and Incas and to practice perspective taking. Each question comes with a ½ sheet and full sheet option.
There are 43 different questions in the product and here is a small sampling (each one comes with clip art to make it more interesting for your students to complete):
1) Design a license plate for a Mayan merchant or artisan. The numbers, letters and design of the license plate should represent his or her responsibilities and accomplishments.
2) Consider the Aztec capital city and design currency to represent Tenochtitlan. Use a combination of colorful illustrations and phrases.
3) Create one or two apps on the iPad below that would help the Aztecs defend themselves against the Spanish conquerors.
4) Design the front and back cover of a biography about an Inca emperor. Write a title and include a combination of images and writing.
