This product was designed to help meet the newly revised 2017-2018 Social Studies Georgia Standards of Excellence. I have designed a variety of simple and engaging activities to help reteach or extend lessons on the standards.
Please keep in mind that these activities assume you have already taught a lesson or lessons to help students meet the standard. These activities may help you reteach a lesson to a small group who struggled with the idea, information, concept, or skill presented in the standard; or extend the lesson to those who are ready to go beyond the standard.
For the most part, these activities assume you already have some sort of text (textbook, trade books, picture books, reading passages, magazines, articles, or websites) for students to use in the classroom that served as the primary basis of your lesson. Occasionally, a reading passage is included, or the activity only requires students to use the information presented in the activity. For example, if the activity is to write an acrostic poem about Nat Love, students might need access to a passage, text, or notes from the your primary lesson about black cowboys in order to complete the activity.
Generally, you will find each activity to be about one to two pages. The activities range from puzzles, graphic organizers, close reads, vocabulary games, and photo discussion cards to summary writing activities, illustrating activities, timeline activities, poetry writing activities and more!
Each activity is clearly labeled with the numeric standard and whether the activity is intended to assist you with re-teaching the lesson or extending the lesson. For most standards include at least one reteach activity and one extension.
