Using them is simple. The day after you teach topographic maps, have the class starters on a desk in the middle of the room
1) Give the students 3-5 minutes to complete them with a timer for the students to see.
2) Have the individual student hand the finished paper to you.
3) At the end of five minutes you have a formative assessment of what was retained from the day before, you can go over the answer, and the students are in their seats and ready to get to work on the day's lesson.
All you have to do is print, cut and the students do the rest!
The full sets include 23 topics each, or 46 for the bundle as well as teacher notes for implementation, table of contents and full answer keys.
