PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Which state is the best? You may think its pretty obvious, but what about turning this question into an amazing geography, speech, and critical thinking project? In State Smackdown, students are assigned a state and then must research what makes it “the best” for a two-minute persuasive speech. During their research, they will create a map that can be used as a visual aide or as a way to teach some basic mapping skills. After several rounds of peer and teacher critique, each student will give their 2 minute “smackdown” to determine which state reigns supreme. This activity is a great way to meet both Writing and Speaking and Listening CCSS standards, but overall is just a fun way to get students to develop their speaking and mapping skills. This product comes with
- Rubrics for evaluating student work
- Note taking and feedback handouts
- Mapping requirements and a How To video to teach students mapping skills
- State cards for assigning states
- Sample students writing
