Product Description

The attached assignment is based on an idea I learned years ago. It has been modified to fit Louisiana history (you can modify it to fit your own needs). It asks you to divide the students into teams of 4-8. They should have no books, no pencils, no maps, and no papers in front of them. It is a game of "team work". Have them select a "team spokesman" Then go around the room and begin asking a question.

Each question is ONE POINT. Questions in the early going could range from the local state map or local area in which they live. I use it several times a year and it works well on those days when an assembly or something else cuts into your day.
