Jigsaw puzzle groups
In your new group, you will identify the historical era represented by your image, tape it on a poster paper, and label the historical era.
When everyone has placed their sticky notes on their posters, we will engage in a carousel brainstorming activity in which each group will circulate around the posters and silently read the stickies and write down characteristics of the era represented.
Once each group has visited each of the other posters, they will return to their original poster and examine the characteristics identified by the others in the room, and will create a brief summary of the historical era based on the characteristics identified. Select one group member to post your summary to the Google Community.
