Looking for a way to review key Social Studies concepts all year long? This is a great way to quickly review 5th Grade Social Studies content every day. Each day consists of 1-3 questions (multiple choice, short answer, fill in the blank, and extended response) that introduce topics and then review them throughout the remainder of the year. This was created for my 5th Grade classroom and the topics covered are based largely on the order they are covered in our History Alive Program, but it would be a great review for any U.S. History Classroom.
I truly believe the key to success when teaching any content area is reviewing content all year. I have seen great gains in my students test scores with my Math Spiral Review, so I used the same concept in creating this review. A Topics Index is also included which lists the order the concepts are introduced and which review sheets they are revisited on.
-Native Americans and Culture
-Early English Settlements
-Events Leading to the Revolutionary War
-The Revolutionary War
-Industrialization and Modern America
I use these as daily instant activities which the students complete as soon as class begins. This gives me a chance to get the day's lesson ready, and then we go over the review. This would also work great as weekly quizzes or a review for 8th Grade U.S. History.
