Use these Sortify Discussion Starters to help students reflect on their learning during and after the Sortify American Revolution game, and expand the discussion to how game play relates to real life.

  • What strategies did you use when choosing your bucket labels?
  • How did you decide which bucket to place your tiles in when there was more than one option?
  • Which tiles were the most difficult to sort? Why?
  • If you selected the “from the great state of” bucket label, what states did you type the most? Why do you think that is?
  • Why do you think the ‘rivals’ bucket was worth 5 points?
  • Were there any bucket labels that were confusing to you? How did you figure it out?
  • What are some other ways your tiles could have been sorted?
  • If you could create 5 additional tiles to include in the game, what would they be?
