World History Stations Activity - Intro to the Renaissance *Print & Go Prep*

Looking for a fun way to get your students talking, moving, and collaborating? Look no further!

This Station Activity will get your students moving while introducing them to the content that will learn throughout the unit.

How the Lesson Works:

★ This lesson is made up of six stations that will allow your students to discuss the following topics:

Station 1 - Welcome to the Renaissance! (Forming first impressions based on a song about the Renaissance)
Station 2 - Can You Imagine Life Without (Inventions from the Renaissance)
Station 3 - Oh Snap! (Important Figures from the Renaissance)
Station 4 - A Day in the Life (Daily Life During the Renaissance)
Station 5 - What Would Our World Be Like (The Protestant Reformation)
Station 6 - Two Truths and a Lie (Vocabulary Review)
★ This activity can be completed by individual students or by teams of students with one answer sheet.

★ The stations are designed to be completed in ten minutes. The entire lesson will take sixty minutes to complete.

★ Many of the stations involve writing opinions rather than facts, so there is not always necessarily a correct or incorrect answer. I’ve included a sample answer sheet to give you an idea of how students can respond to these prompts.

★ This purchase includes the six station cards, supplemental files for three of the stations, a student answer sheet, a sample completed answer sheet, a Notes for Teachers document explaining each station with tips and tricks.

★ All files come in a PDF format.

Required Materials:

★ Two of the stations require devices for watching videos on YouTube and listening to a song saved on Google Drive. Any device with an internet connection will work.
