These content rich activities are student centered and interactive. Depending on which one you choose, each activity has 6-11 stations with close readings and primary sources detailing the geography, achievements, social classes, leadership, economy and religion of a particular era / region.
Readings come with pictures, charts and maps. Questions and interactive mini activities are underneath the reading AND on a separate worksheet for teacher choice. Teacher instructions are included with different activity ideas with Common Core readings.
Great news! Many of our stations feature a Google Classroom online reading investigation option. Students can read independently and complete a graphic organizer or answer the questions at the bottom of the reading. This is a great way to cover all the bases in a digital Interactive Notebook format!
