There is nothing like the sound of students working hard on an assignment the minute class has begun. What is that sound? Silence! Our Investigation History warm-ups or bell-ringers are skill-based content rich mini-lessons! Instructomania created these to enforce skills that my colleagues and I felt students were just not getting. Each Warm-Up is Key Concepts for history based (political development, social and cultural development, economic development and geographic expansion) and skill focused.
First, students review skills such as finding strong evidence to support claims, writing good commentary, citing evidence in various ways and paraphrasing. Then, students practice the skill by analyzing primary sources text, secondary source text, and maps with a multiple choice question per day. Answers and explanations are a click away!
Here’s what’s included:
⭐A 25-page Warm-Up Google Slide Show with answers that appear on click.
⭐A student-driven interactive review link! In this option, the answers have been removed so students review unit content individually or in a group by dragging a star to the correct answer!
