PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity provides students with practice in outlining. It is used most effectively after lessons in outlining have been taught and prior to students writing their own outlines.

The activity is designed to be used by students individually or in small groups (my personal favorite!) after they have been taught the basics of outlining. Students receive one of four outlines. The items in the outline are listed in alphabetical order. Students cut them apart, organize them into an order that makes sense, and then write in appropriate Roman numerals, capital letters, and numbers.

What you receive in this PDF no-prep activity:

~ Four different outlines. The outlines have the items within them organized in alphabetical order. Each outline has two versions: one with just an alphabetical list of items and a second version, which has some subtopics in bold to help students who may need a hint to get started.

~ A fifth outline, to be used as a teaching model to demonstrate the activity and how one thinks through the process of outlining.

~ Directions and tips on how to run the activity

~ An extra sheet of printable tips for outlining and a brief chart of Roman numerals -- perfect for using in interactive notebooks.

~ Answer keys.

This activity is best used after students have been taught the basics of outlining. This information is not included in the activity. If you need a lesson on how to outline, be sure to check out my PowerPoint lessons on outlining:
