Activities for Students and Teachers

The Teacher Guide and Student Activities in this section were created as a resource of ideas. You are welcome to download and copy them. Many of the activities stand alone but some are created to enhance a section of text. The puzzles in the student section are adapted from the Biographies and Vocabulary sections. The answer keys are located in the Teacher section.

These activities are adaptable for fifth grade through high school students. Some activities have more than one suggested lesson plan so the insturctor can tailor the information to the learner's needs. The Student Activities are designed for use by individual students as an enriching activity or they can be printed and used by an entire class.
