This fun activity is designed to make memorization interesting!
Recall that Carolina Gold is rice, vigilantes took the law into their own hands, indigo is used to make blue dye, and a royal colony is controlled by the king. The kinesthetic activity is a challenge that assesses these key ideas and others that are key to SC indicators 8-1.5, and 8-1.6.
There is a concise direction sheet for the teacher as well as students. It includes a visual modification that can help serve an IEP accommodation.
Students really enjoy the independence that this activity offers. They are generally able to navigate it with a partner, and they remain focused on the hands-on aspect. When the teacher does assist, there is ample opportunity for instruction.
