Middle school and high school students will appreciate the different aspects of this lesson, including analysis, annotation, timeline study, skills review, chronology study, and more. Not only does this activity offer 70+ topic cards, but it also has options for individual student and whole class implementation, a SPRITE organizer and key, and teaching suggestions and implementation directions. Squeezing this wrap-up activity in at the end of the year is easy and beneficial.

Implementation Strategies


Create an Archaeological Dig

Have students dig deep into the well of knowledge they've filled over the past year. This activity will get students out of their seats and on their feet! Divide students into groups or have them work individually with these task cards and then present information to the class.

Line up through History

Have students create a human timeline with these task cards. By engaging in the lesson hands-on, students are likely to retain more information and can really embrace their event to represent and present to their peers.

Final SPRITE Analysis

In pairs or groups, have students complete the SPRITE organizer one last time. SPRITE analysis is a skill that will benefit your students for many years (and many more classes!) to come. Ingraining these skills throughout the year will prepare them for future coursework by reminding them how to analyze and compare Social, Political, Religious, Intellectual, Technological, and Economic attributes.
