4 Quarters and A Rectangle

 

 

Tip: 4 Quarters and A Rectangle

How do I do it?
Give each group of 4 a blank sheet folded in fourths. Unfold and draw a rectangle in the center. Each student takes turns writing or drawing what they know about the topic in their corner. After a determined time or the paper fills up, the students vote on the most important fact and write it in the center of the paper. 

Extensions:
Groups can report out to the rest of the group; write sentences or a paragraph summary using the sheet as a pre-writing tool.

Common Core ELA Reading Standard 2
Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.
