One Activity- Two Ways! Use this product to get your students up, moving and talking about history from day one! I use this as a warm-up activity during the first week of school to get them talking and secretly assess how much background knowledge they have!
Option 1: Timeline Scramble
Students are given event cards and have to work together to physically get themselves in the correct chronological order. Great as a first day warm up, group activity and let's you see how familiar they are with U.S. History.
Option 2: Gallery Walk
Post the event cards around your classroom. I like to pair them with a textbook and students can practice getting familiar with the textbook, and look up the events in the text. They each are given a recording sheet and must move around the room to look at all the events and put them in order on their sheet. This option provides you with a written assessment of their knowledge and ensure that all students are participating and getting familiar with their new textbook.
