On this Date in Louisiana History for December
I currently have over 600+ Louisiana facts for the year and this set covers some of the best and most interesting historical, weather, sports, trivia, music, festival and other facts. In my option, warmups/bell-ringers should be used in the first FIVE minutes of class to increase interest and give students a chance to offer their own ideas of what may have happened.
I generally give extra credit to each student that fills out their own answer to each bell-ringer.I have used these for years in my own classrooms and they have always created great opening discussions on a very large set of topics.
My students always wanted to know more about each item which kept me on my toes. I generally change them from year to year depending on any new facts I get from the previous year.
