This categorizing activity will allow students to sort and compare characteristics of six ancient cultures: Anasasi, Aztecs, Incas, Mayans, Mound Builders, and Inuits. Characteristics include location, religion, housing, specialties, etc. There are 4-7 characteristics for each group.
All you need to do to have this ready for class tomorrow is print and cut. I’ve included two versions and a student worksheet, as well as an answer key.
You could use this as a group activity, guided practice, independent work, homework, a hook or pretest, a review game, a formative assessment, or an end of unit test. This activity can be used to link ELA standards for informational text (RI 5.3, RI 5.4, RI 5.5).
Please let me know if you have any questions! Download the preview document for some more detailed notes regarding how this game looked in my classroom.
