Easy Activity for Memorizing Steps of 5 or 10

Have students trace one or both (depending on if they have 5 or 10 things to memorize) of their hands onto construction paper. In each finger have students give 1-3 words (and maybe a picture) that describes a the fact to be memorized. For example, if students need to memorize the Bill of Rights (first 10 amendments of the constitution), they may number each finger on their hand. On the second finger they can write "Bear Arms" for the short meaning on the 2nd amendment.

Application to English- Use this activity to help memorize the 5 parts of a 5 paragraph essay (introduction, body paragraph 1, body paragraph 2 body paragraph 3, conclusion)

Application to Science- Use this activity to identify the 5 stages of mitosis- prophase, prometaphase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase

Application to Social Studies- Use this activity to memorize (of course) the first 10 amendment of the constitution.
