The Fifth Grade and Seventh Grade Ohio Social Studies Standards have some overlap. For example, we both study the Age of Exploration, but Fifth Grade focuses on the lasting effects in the Western Hemisphere and Seventh Grade looks at Global affects. Regardless, when the Seventh Grade teacher asked if my students would be interested in peer reviewing their Age of Exploration Game boards, I excitedly responded yes!
The Fifth Graders had a great time playing all the different types of games. The Seventh Graders incorporated some Science standards into their game boards to create buzzers and lights and sounds. It was a great time for students of all ages!
