This is a group activity that I do with my students as a review before the STAAR Test. This activity is aligned with the Texas 8th Grade Social Studies TEKS.
This resource contains the worksheet, word bank, and answer key. Total of 18 pages.
6 pages = Descriptions with blank boxes
6 pages = Word banks for each page
6 pages = Answer key for each page
Example: When I do this activity in class I divide the students into 6 groups.
Students are given copies of the 6 pages of the descriptions with blank boxes.
I make each word bank page a different color (pages are numbered to tell you which word bank goes with each description page).
Each group has a different color/ word bank sheet.
Students rotate groups every 5-6 minutes.
As a group students use the word bank to match the correct answer with the descriptions and write it down on their paper.
At the end of class we go over the answers to make sure students have the correct information to study for the Social Studies STAAR test.
My students love this activity and have fun completing it.
