An exploratory activity that gets your class moving, thinking, and creating!
Social Studies curriculum changes topic, sometimes drastically, from year to year. But, the common themes found in all classes and subjects stay the same; they are the PEGS factors (Political, Economic, Geographic, Social). Build a solid foundation in these concepts to help your students find success for years to come in Social Studies!
The Ink-Think activity gets students up and moving around the room and encouraging everyone to participate by allowing them to write, instead of say, their responses to share. Students always enjoy creaing Picto-words at the end of lessons to highlight their understanding of the topic in a fun and creative way!
Lesson Includes: PEGS poster set, Teacher Quick Reference Guide, Ink Think Activity Directions, Student Picto-words handout, and Picto-words rubric
Hope you and your students enjoy! Please check my TpT store for more great lessons. I will be adding new lessons all the time. Thanks!
