Science/Social Studies Tic-Tac-Toe Activity Sheet

I made a sheet that can get students to look at sections in science and social studies books creatively. Though my students answer questions and write summaries (and sometimes outline sections), I require for them to "go outside the box" and create resources for their classmates. They then get to teach the lesson to their classmates using the resources. They must choose at least 2 activities from this chart to enrich their lesson. Students, at fewest, pair up and at most, have four students to a team.

Of course, you may make your own... or change the last box because our music teacher's name is in there. She on Fridays splits our class into two large groups and does a game where they compete against the clock.

Fact or Fiction is where you write true or false statements based on what you read. You change one word to make the Fact or Fiction statements.

Do you have Adobe Acrobat Reader, where you can view .pdf documents? That is all I can think of...

(Edit: Drat! I wrote "Adobe Photoshop"!!)

pdf documents can be viewed with Acrobat Reader (or whatever Adobe is calling it these days: the free program to read pdfs, not the pricey one to make them), or on a Mac with Preview.

That is awesome Ms. Jasztal. I teach HS'ers and will revamp this idea to use in my World History classes.

Thanks so much for sharing

Sigh! I have Adobe. I have Mac Preview. I only get squares and other little symbols. I SOUNDS really neat.

Maybe if I try it on the PC when my husband gets off later.
