Attack CCSS on the first day of school with this United States History Settlement to Civil War Find Someone Who Meet & Greet Activity.
A twist on the traditional Find Someone Who, students are given clue cards on significant historic figures. They must match their card to a classmate's, investigate a textbook or other classroom resource to find out who their historic figure is, and then introduce their figure and themselves to the class.
A great ice breaker, or use this as an end of the year review before testing!
Includes clue cards for 20 historic figures (see thumbnail image for listing) and additional activity options for anytime classroom implementation (a Facebook and Pinterest Template for research activities).
Also includes some sets of 3 for the odd numbered class!
So many variations for this set of cards. Use to create a display wall on historic figures you will cover in the school year, a research starter activity, or just as a fun time-filler that adheres to CCSS.
Great for any grades studying United States History or for any class that has an appreciation of American history and its contributions. Some vocabulary in descriptions may be more appropriate for grades 6 and up.
