Use this "Why is this Important?" worksheet to quickly ensure that students understand why a specific lesson's content is important to the world as well as important in their personal lives. Due to how hectic and busy the teaching environment is, it can be hard to remember to clarify in the classroom why the material is relevant to the students. We tend to think that they know the reasons why, but often times, without a clear explanation of connection, students see activities and lessons as a means to an end--just another part of school they'll forget. This short handout would be used well as an exit ticket out of the classroom.
