Wrapping Up Globetracker’s Mission
TeachersFirst has teamed up with Geo and Meri to provide some activities and ideas for your students to review and reflect on all that they have learned from Globetracker's Mission: Finding Dewey. These activities can also serve as final assessments of student understanding. Both activity types include some teaching tips:
Interactive activities ready for your projector, interactive whiteboard, or student computers.
Written review/reflection/extension activities ready for use in classroom discussion, on paper, or on computer and categorized by thinking level (Bloom's Taxonomy) so you can differentiate for all levels and types of learners. Many include printables.
Printable quizzes (no tips, just the printables)
