U.S. History Pretest: Which Word Doesn’t Belong?
Directions: X out the word that is either completely misplaced or is the least likely to belong with the rest. Once answered, conduct research and in the empty boxes write one additional true word or phrase for each event.
This can be used as a pretest or as an easy, step one of a final review. Students can even add artwork in the margins of the handout.
Topics include: American Revolution, Creating a Constitution, Civil War, Reconstruction, Westward Expansion, Immigration, Industrialization, Great War, 1920's and 1930's, World War II, Cold War, and a breakdown of the 1950's through today.
