The 1960’s Power Point and Internet Scavenger Hunt Worksheet
This is a bundle of activities that take your students on an Internet scavenger hunt adventure through the 1960’s. It has an entertaining and colorful power point presentation and worksheet which introduces your students to this decade of war and protest, Rock and Roll, and sports. I am a Language Arts teacher and have used this scavenger hunt with two of SE Hinton novel’s the Outsiders and That Was Then This Is Now. It can also be used in an American History classroom. This bundle consists of
1) A cooperative learning 1960’s Internet Scavenger Hunt worksheet where students work in groups to find information on the Web. This worksheet is a graphic organizer with a cloze entry timeline. Some of the information is provided and students must use the Internet to research and find missing information and details to complete the graphic organizer. It is a great strategy for integrating Language Arts and Social Studies which my kids just eat up. The events include the three major political assassinations of the decade, important events in the history of the Vietnam War, the Cold War, the Civil Rights movement, as well as major events in entertainment and sports during the decade.
2) The 1960’s Internet Scavenger Hunt Power Point Presentation
This is an entertaining and colorful 28 slide power point presentation with attractive clipart and graphics. This power point presented after the internet scavenger hunt and highlights all of the important information gleaned. It is an effective strategy for reinforcing the information found and discussing these events in more detail. Again it is a great way to integrate Language Arts and Social Studies. I spent a great deal of time on this and am very proud of the results. Again my kids loved it I hope you will like it.
