Higher-level students will work collaboratively to create trivia game cards about the elements that define states and nations. They will find information on the internet or in books to help them find information about specific states and nations. Students will analyze the information to determine which information would be important enough to include on the game card to help someone figure out the answer. The information that they will be finding will include details about culture, demographics, economy, and geography of the state or nation for which they are trying to define and write a trivia card. This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
