NOTE: INCLUDED IN OUR PROJECT LEARNING COMBO. PLEASE BE CAREFUL NOT TO DUPLICATE YOUR PURCHASE
PROJECT LEARNING: WORK IN GROUPS & ENGAGE YOUR STUDENTS IN HISTORY SKILLS contains Project Centered Learning activities that can be used to engage your students and reinforce & review the basic skills of social studies. Students need these skills to read and analyze historic reference books, articles on history, textbooks, etc.
The bulk of the activities have students working in groups of (2-4) people. The students will be using interviewing techniques, chronological order skills, comparison & contrast skills and cause & effect skills in a variety of hands on, high interest, fun activities. The activities challenge each student to function in a group setting, problem solve, use their right brain and complete tasks for which they are individually responsible.
Each PROJECT stands alone and takes a maximum of
3 days depending on the activity. You may pick & choose or use all of them. You can also spread them out throughout the school year when you consider the Project more pertinent.
One last piece of information. I have used these activities at the beginning of the year, & each shows social studies might be fun! They also allow the students to get to know each other a little.
