There are a number of ways to use this PowerPoint in your classroom.

As a Teaching Tool:

Go over each question as a group discussing each answer option. Focus on teaching students how to eliminate answers that have no possibility of being true. This will help with testing when the time arrives.

For Review:

Divide your class into two teams. Go back and forth giving each team every other slide. Each team must work together decide on the answer.

For Evaluation:

Write the answer on an answer sheet, then self check when the slide is clicked a second time.

=========================================================================

This resource is useful for any third grade classroom, however it is specifically designed to meet the Common Core Standard RL.3.2: Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
