Books Teachers Love: February Books

 

Hey friends! Another edition of Books Teachers Love is here!
Is this your first time? Check out our past posts!
My book is about the ever so famous, Susan B. Anthony.
The book walks the kids through election time in the 1870’s
Susan B. Anthony illegally casts her ballot for president.
If you have an account with BrainPop, there is a great video to help explain Susan B. Anthony!
Once the kids have some background to who Susan B. Anthony is, I will read them the book!
Now that the kids know who she is, it is time for them to create!
One of the quickest and easiest ways to assess students understudying of material AND integrate technology is a simple 4 square!
Download the app: PicCollage
Create a 4 square
Answer the following questions:
What did she do?
Why is she famous?
What character traits describe Susan B. Anthony, why?
You can use this idea for any topic!
I just used this four square idea for types of energy!
Kids had to define and insert a picture of that type of energy in the school.
I like to have my kids upload their finished products to SEESAW so their parents can view it.

I hope this was a Peppy Zesty idea for you!

    What an awesome assessment tool that the kids will love! I'm feeling burned out on assessments so this is perfect!
