Chapter 11 Section 3 Lesson plan


Objective: Students will be able to write about the societies of south America. Students will be able to place the indigenous groups from the entire chapter on a map.


Instructional Sequence: This is the last chapter in the first unit of world history. They have already learned about the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe during this same time period.

Assessment plan: Students will be writing reflections to the pictures they view. Students will be making a map of civilizations from the chapter.




Dum Dum Question: Students answer a random question at the beginning of the hour that gets the class started off. For getting the closest answer a student receives a dum dum sucker.


Warm up to section 3: Photo alignment. Students will each pull out a lined sheet of paper. The lights are turned off. Students must be silent during this time. I created a presentation with 9 pictures representing the material from this section. Each picture will be left on the smart board for 30 seconds. Students must look at the picture and answering one or more of the following questions.

  • What do you feel when looking at this photo?
  • What about this photo interests you?
  • What do you notice about this photo?
  • What is familiar to you in this photo?
  • What is unfamiliar to you?
  • What do you wonder about when looking at the photo?

These pictures will be discussed in the interactive slide lecture that I will give during the class period. The pictures are also hung in a collage on a wall in the classroom to peak student interest.


Students will have a blank map of the America’s. They will be placing the civilizations they learned about this chapter on a map based on the maps in Chapter 11.
