This document contains 20 bell ringers to be used in either an ELA or Social Studies classroom. The topics of these bell ringers are either information Social Studies passages or historical speeches. Each passage or speech has just four questions- a quick assignment to get your students thinking while working in the first few minutes of class. Many questions are multiple choice and short answer, although there are some longer writing questions as well.
This document also has some great ease of use features: each bell ringer is formatted to fit two on a page to save paper and there is an answer key for your convenience at the end of the document.
