This will expose your students to a DRAG and DROP "SIMULATION" (NOT ON COMPUTER). By cutting and gluing information onto charts, students will become familiarized with this format. This is a good way to scaffold practicing chart-based activities before students actually have to drag and drop on the computer during the test or other test practices. These questions especially focus on RECALLING DETAILS and PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS. There are also 2 written responses that students can complete.
THIS PACK ALSO INCLUDES ADDITIONAL, BONUS ACTIVITY:
*SKETCHING FROM THE TEXT :)
*Answer Keys are included for "non" open-ended activities. Answers will vary for open-ended activities, including written responses.
