U.S. History Quick Starts
The U.S. History Quick Starts workbook features warm-up activities that are grouped into the following units: "The Land and First People"; "Explorers and Colonizers"; "Revolutionaries and Pioneers"; "Slavery, Freedom, and Technology"; and "The United States as a World Power". Some activities encourage creative thinking with open-ended projects like faux pioneer diary entries and short speeches supporting or opposing controversial issues. Other activities require memory and critical-thinking skills, such as cause and effect, compare and contrast, or sequencing. Each page features two to four quick starts that can be cut apart and used separately. The entire page may also be used as a whole-class or individual assignment. Grades 4-8 and up. 64 pages.
