Purpose of Activity:
The overall purpose of this activity is to engage your students by having them think of the top four concepts, topics, events, parts, etc. of a topic. This activity can be used for any subject.
How to use in classroom:
→The first thing that you will need to do is choose a topic. The ideas are endless!
→Once you have a topic in mind, provide your students with the student handout.
→Explain to your students that they will need to illustrate what they believe are the four “Mount Rushmores” of the topic.
→Once they are finished illustrating, they will need to explain their reasons why they chose what they did. How much detail they provide is up to you and probably also depends on the topic.
→In some cases, students may not have to illustrate but provide words instead. You can adapt the directions to fit your needs.
→This activity can lead to an interesting discussion and can make a creative bulletin board as well.
★Topic: Most intriguing planets (other than Earth)
★Four “Mount Rushmores”: Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn
★Example explanation for Mars: I chose Mars because it is a planet that has been studied and explored. Two other reasons is that it takes Mars 687 days to orbit the sun and the surface gravity on Mars is only 37% of Earth’s, meaning a person could jump about 3 times higher on Mars!
