All About Communities
Grade Levels: 3 - 5
- Students will practice creative thinking by applying their knowledge of community to create a quiz.
- Paper and pencils
- Ask students to think of words that have to do with community. A list of such words might include weather, climate, law, goods, services, geography, landform, history, and natural resources. List appropriate suggested words on the chalkboard.
- Ask students to take out paper and pencils.
- Explain to students that they will create a turned-around quiz, which gives them an opportunity to think creatively and show what they have learned about communities.
- Ask students to take turns writing an answer (you might suggest that students use words from the list on the chalkboard) and then writing a possible question that matches the answer.
- As an alternative activity, you can supply students with answers and have them create possible questions on their own.
