Michelle Lundy Making It As A Middle School Teacher 2012
Grade Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies indicatesthat students should know about 6 major ethnic groups from theregions studied throughout the 7
These ethnic groups include:ArabPersianKurdBantuAshantiSwahili
This puzzle task was used after a review lesson on all 6ethnic groups. The same facts were presented in aPowerPoint along with several pictures as visual clues.Students were then randomly given puzzle pieces andinstructed to complete the puzzles based on the facts theyhad learned. This task is self-correcting in that if thepuzzle piece does not fit, the fact pertains to a differentethnic group.
I recommend heavy-duty card stock and lamination in order touse these cards more than once.
My students enjoyed this task since it was different from other review lessons wehad done previously.
