PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A wise mentor once told me "Knowledge has organizing power" and this will help your kids organize an entire course around this information. Once learned, throughout the year kids can "attach" additional content learned to these most significant aspects of World History. At the end of the year kids look back and can see why this information was important to learn. I just surveyed my kidlets the other day and all agreed this was valuable to do at the start of the year. If you want to differentiate you have plenty of chances because there are nine quizzes.

You get a packet of basic information for students to study, a review worksheet, Power Point flash cards for the people and dates, and nine, highly organized, cumulative numbered quizzes with answer keys.

Quiz 1: Dates. A simple matching quiz of seventeen dates such as American Revolution, French Revolution, imperialism, WWI, WWII, and the Cold War. It is broken down into three separate sections to allow kids to begin to build confidence for the next quiz.

Quiz 2 & 3: All dates in one set of matching questions
Quiz 4 & 5: Students write the dates next to the era/event
Quiz 6 & 7: Dates and influential people
Quiz 8 & 9: Dates, influential people, economic systems, political systems and numbers such as most populous nations, largest nations in land area, largest economies, etc.

Motivational quotes and a note about what the next quiz will include are included at the bottom of each quiz so students are clear about what to expect next.

Once students master this base of knowledge at the start of the year it can be used as:

• Constructive “filler” when you have a few minutes left at the end of class.
• A bell ringer activity -- just use my Power Point flashcards.
• Sub plan material

Influential people students must know are:
Louis XVI
Adolf Hitler
Vladimir Lenin
Deng Xiaoping
John Locke
Adam Smith
Queen Victoria
Karl Marx
Thomas Jefferson
Ronald Reagan

There is a 3-4 sentence description about the contribution of each person in the purchased material.

Industrial Revolution
American Revolution
Declaration of Independence
US Constitution

Napoleonic Era
Age of Imperialism

9/11

The three main economic systems and five major political systems are included along with different important numbers.

I’ve used local cities for two population figures. You may or may not want to change these to fit your location to give students a more accurate point of reference.
