PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What is it?

Common Core Girls present a cubing activity that uses Bloom's Taxonomy. Cubing is a technique for considering a subject from six points of view. Students work with a partner to read Magic Tree House Sabertooths and the Ice Age and to complete six questions or statements that require students to Describe it, Compare it, Associate it, Analyze it, Apply it and Argue for or against it. It works when we are “stuck” or locked into one particular way of thinking. Cubing allows students to look at Sabertooths and the Ice Age from a variety of angles and to develop a multidimensional perspective.

******************************************************************************

How can you use it?

Teachers can provide enough copies of the book to partner read the story and work on the cubing activity together.

This activity can also be used as an independent learning project or as a literacy center.
