FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON – “U.S. History Bell Ringers, Discussion Questions & Writing Prompts Sample”

by Impossible Things Learning
7th – 12th Grade

This set of ten sample prompts from my Brain-Stretcher collection is tailor-made for U.S. History and works equally well as writing prompts, bell ringers, or discussion questions. They get students thinking about topics that they will be exploring in class, finding relevance in the past, and reflecting on what they have learned. These Brain-Stretchers are truly versatile and are an absolute lifesaver in the classroom!

The questions in each prompt are purely opinion based (no right or wrong answers) so they are accessible to all students. Each individual Brain-Stretcher is neatly spaced onto its own pdf page (that displays nicely in full screen mode) and is between two to five sentences long. To help students focus on the main idea of each prompt, one key sentence is in bold font.

This sample set contains five prompts from the “U.S. History Brain-Stretchers: Colonization to 1865” set and five prompts from the “U.S. History Brain-Stretchers: 1865 to Present” set. If you like this sample, be sure to click on the links below to take a closer look at each full set:

U.S. History Brain-Stretchers: Colonization to 1865

U.S. History Brain-Stretchers: 1865 to the Present

Whether you use these prompts to spark a lively debate, promote literacy in your classroom, or as “bell-ringers”, they are sure to make your classroom more engaging and purpose driven!

Wondering why I call them “Brain-Stretchers”? I like the idea of having students warm up their minds before we fully embark on our journey through the past in much the same way that athletes stretch their muscles before more vigorous exercise. As you can see from the positive student feedback that I have received, they are an ideal way to spark interest and get students thinking!

Colon and Semicolon Breakout Room (Digital Activity)

Description

This breakout room activity requires access to the internet and uses Google Docs, Slides, and Forms.

Breakout rooms are a great way to reinforce learning grammar concepts. In my experience, students don’t love grammar and worksheets were not an effective means to teach them how to write better.

After several years of trying different things, I am excited to say that I have found the best solution yet. This mini breakout room allows students to reinforce grammar concepts while having fun. A student shouted, “This is so much fun!” while completing the activity.

What is different about this breakout room is its length. Many times, students get bored if the activity is too long, or if it is too challenging or complicated to complete. This mini breakout room focuses only on colons ad semicolons and will take students between 10 to 20 minutes depending on their skills and knowledge. (This is how long it took my grade 9 academic class.)

Please note that students must have prior knowledge of colons and semicolons before beginning the activity.

The instructions – Included are a set of instructions for students. Try this! With your stronger classes, instead of giving them instructions, students can try to uncover what they are supposed to do in each of the “rooms” on their own as an extra challenge. You can decide which method would best suit your group.

You can share a copy of the Student PDF with your class in Google Classroom or another digital medium, or you can only share the link in the instructions.

Please look for the entire line of grammar breakout rooms coming soon.

Looking for a way to get students to set goals? This resource has several different worksheets as well as a teacher display copy of Smart Goals. Also included are two coloring sheets: “I can overcome obstacles” and I can accomplish my goals.

I like to begin each semester with a goal setting session to help students focus on setting small goals. There is also a link to a digital version of these goal worksheets.

The Chrysalids- Chapter 9 Breakout Review Game

Description

The Chrysalids Game for Chapter 9 is the perfect addition to any novel unit!  Students answer questions about important concepts and information from the novel in a Waknuk Town Fair Breakout-themed game that is sure to engage even the most reluctant learner.  Students will answer questions to dunk the clown, they will visit a labyrinth of mirrors to uncover the correct answers to questions, they will race toys horses at the carnival by answering questions correctly, and they will end their quest in the house of horrors where they need to use a special glass to find the answers to questions.  

According to research, using games when teaching increases student participation, comprehension, as well as fostering emotional and social learning.

Today’s 21st- century student needs to be fully engaged in learning to gain knowledge and then apply it in meaningful ways. Many teachers find that traditional comprehension questions are not engaging and often do not reinforce understanding. Both teacher and student often find answering the traditional chapter questions tedious and uninteresting.   

Help your students become fully engaged with John Wyndham’s “The Chrysalids” by incorporating these short, fun games into your unit.  

This game is also available as a bundle to save you time and money. Check out the bundle and where games for every chapter in the novel are included. Click here.

The game includes 23 quality questions that check the student’s understanding and are varied to include:  

  • Important vocabulary and terms
  • Symbolism
  • Irony
  • Foreshadow
  • Literary elements
  • Plot 
  • Characters
  • Quotes
  • Everything you would ask in traditional comprehension questions

Answer key is also included for teachers.

The games created are interactive, engaging, and varied to maintain student interest. Each game includes a different theme with different challenges. Some games have game-show quiz-style questions, while others are like mini breakout rooms. Even better, the games require no preparation for the teacher. Other than an internet connection, nothing else is required! Merely share the game link with students, and they’re off to work on their own. The games also inform students of the correct answer to all questions, so they will learn the necessary information before moving on to subsequent material.

Students can play these games as a group or individually. Create a class challenge to see who can complete the games in less time. The possibilities are endless! These games are also a great way to engage students in learning online.

The activities will take 15 to 25  minutes, depending on the game and the student’s abilities.

I love doing this activity at the beginning of my lessons to review the previous chapter, which facilitates discussions and class activities.

The games can be played on any PC, laptop or tablet, Smartphone, Mac, or Chromebook. Anything that can access the internet can be used to access the games.
