When I was in sixth grade, our teacher gave us Social Studies homework every night. We had to read a chapter and write questions over what we read AND had to include the answers to the questions. She used the questions almost every day after lunch to play baseball to review what we read. And guess what? We knew the material!
Click on the pic above to get a sheet to give your students to encourage them to write good questions based on a seasonal book. They work with a partner and get the other child to answer the questions.
Happy Fall, Y'all!
