POP CULTURE CONNECTIONS bring history to the present. Our students took the Preamble of 1787 and applied it to modern day scenarios inspired by a reality show. We observed students Thinking Interdependently during the “team huddles” and Striving for Accuracy while brainstorming ideas. Many Applied Past Knowledge to New Situations and demonstrated initiative by creating props and/or wearing costumes.
Did you like this learning activity? Why or Why not?
How will it help you to understand the meaning of the Preamble and apply it to real life?
