A hands-on, cooperative learning activity to get your students engaged in your lesson!
Social Studies curriculum changes topic, sometimes drastically, from year to year. But, the common themes found in all classes and subjects stay the same; they are the PEGS factors (Political, Economic, Geographic, Social). Build a solid foundation in these concepts to help your students find success for years to come in Social Studies!
This is an introduction activity to encourage students to really think about the topic. It is intended as a way to introduce the four vocabulary words. Each group gets a bag of 40 images and must complete a sorting activity. Your class will have fun and be challenged as they work together to analyze images, debate possible groupings, and create unique titles for each category they have created. Students enjoy working together in groups and you enjoy seeing students take responsibility for their own learning!
Lesson Includes: PowerPoint presentation, Student Handout, Sorting Picture Cards, and a teacher quick reference guide
