This product is designed to help students review for the Ohio AIR tests for grade 6 (PBS and EOY), but include a wealth of activities which could be useful for any social studies teacher. Activities are designed to be hands on to engage student interest. All activities are "student approved" from my own classroom.
Many of these products are available individually in my TPT store. By purchasing this bundle, though, YOU SAVE 20%, and get each activity for less than $1.50!

This bundle is designed to review several Ohio standards in a fun, hands-on and interactive way, rather than straight-forward test prep worksheets.
Suggestions for use:
1. Set it up as Centers - students may work through them on their own or in partners.
2. Have students complete a pre-assessment to see which skills each needs the most help on.
3. Have students do a "jigsaw" activity to review the river civilizations - each student completes a graphic organizer for one civilization, and then share information in a small group.
