Product Description
This activity tests student’s knowledge of the events leading up to the American Revolution. This is not your typical Scoot. With this activity, students are asked to think in reverse. Rather than simply choosing the correct answer, they need to generate a question for the given answer. For example, if the answer is Betsy Ross, the question might be "Who created the first American Flag?"

This is a terrific critical thinking activity that can be used as a scoot, formative assessment, whole-group with a document camera, in small groups, fast finishers or as a partner activity. There is not only one correct question. Part of the fun is having students determine if their question leads to the given answer. You will be amazed at the questions your students generate. This activity not only gives you information on how well your students understand the events leading up to the American Revolution, but it will give you insight into how your students think.
I suggest laminating the cards or printing them on cardstock for durability.
