U.S. HISTORY QUICK STARTSBrief class openers that involve a range of skills


Use these brief activities to start the day's lesson off right and help students practice and review concepts learned in class. Each page features two to four quick starts, some of which encourage creative thinking with open-ended projects like faux pioneer diary entries and short speeches supporting or opposing controversial issues, while others require memory and critical-thinking skills, such as cause and effect, compare and contrast, or sequencing. Quick starts can be cut apart to use separately, or entire pages may be employed as whole-class or individual assignments. Unit titles: "The Land and First People," "Explorers and Colonizers," "Revolutionaries and Pioneers," "Slavery, Freedom, and Technology," and "The United States as a World Power." Grades 5–12. Illustrated. Mark Twain Media. 62 pages. ©2019.
