A low-prep and copy-free activity that makes reading from the textbook more fun. Can be used on a whim or thoughtfully planned out as a way to cover factual information before digging deeper into primary sources. Engagement level is high, which means behavior problems should be low. And you won’t have to collect and grade papers thanks to the included simple roster grading method.
Here’s How it Works:
» Select 3-4 sections of reading from the textbook.
» Your students will read aloud sections of the text.
» At the end of each section, students are given time to think of 2 facts.
» When all are ready, teacher plays music briefly and students roam the room.
» When music stops, students sit at nearest classmate’s desk and record 2 facts.
» Follow up with a brief class discussion to check and add to facts.
» Repeat process until all sections are complete!
