This awesome American History resource features 65+ slides
of daily warm up or bell-ringer activities for a US History Part 1 course (Exploration through 1877).
These are taken from the best-selling Daily Warm Up Questions for ALL of American History
but with several new slides and focusing just on the first half of American History.
The slides start with Native American groups then continue through the Early colonies, Revolution, Early Republic, Civil War, and finally Reconstruction era.
Each slide contains 3-4 short questions to engage students, reflect on past learning, and segue into your new lesson. All slides contain engaging graphics for visual learners and utilize a variety of questioning styles. The slides could also act as an excellent review activity after a unit or as exit tickets for your classes!
One of the best classroom management strategies I have found is to have these slides projected as students enter the room so that they are immediately engaged in learning. It gives you the first 5 minutes of class to take attendance while they are on task completing the warm up.
With over 65 total slides based on state and Common Core literacy Standards, this fantastic resource for your American History class will last you all year long!
An editable Google Slides
version and complete answer key
are both included for your convenience!
You can also download this combined with US History Part 2 with the Daily Warm Up Questions for ALL of US History
