I absolutely love to get students out of their seat – however when you teach Social Studies, you don’t have a lot of time to waste – so movement must be meaningful. I have used the 4 Corner Strategy in several different ways, but one of my favorite is the 4 Corner Analogies. This uses both movement and higher level thinking to allow student to process their learning.
Why use it?
This strategy allows students to think of complex issues in novel ways.
I use these images to create my 4 Corner Analogy signs – Enjoy!
