A write the room activity is similar to a scoot, but rather than having the students keep a recording sheet, they record their answers directly on the sheet beneath (civil war write the room sheet)
Print out the picture posters and hang around the room (Laminating optional)
Print the Write the room response sheets, you need one per poster. (6)
You can laminate these as well and have students write with Vis-a-Vis or Expo markers
Put students in small groups (4 or 5 to a poster, maybe less depending on class size)
Have students rotate through posters and write down their ideas, predictions, comments, and ideas about the pictures they are seeing at each station.
Have students initial their responses
This is a pre-learning activity, it is best if completed right after an introduction to a unit or topic
