Classroom activities organized by Era of History
Classroom Activities Using the Bee in a Box Website for 8th Grade U.S. History:
These activities are primarily designed for the teacher to use the website as part of normal classroom instruction. Additionally, these could also be another tool to help students prepare for the competition. By clicking the era of history, a series of comprehension questions will be found covering the people, documents, and events for that era. Students will develop their answers to these questions by reviewing the respective entries on the website. At the end of the comprehension questions, the student will be asked to answer connection questions about this content and the era of history. A teacher is able to print a PDF of this assignment for each student if desired.
