Product Description
This twist on an all about me bag introduces the concepts of primary sources, artifacts, observation and inference in social studies. Ideal for beginning of the year history activities, your students will get to know you, another adult, and each other. Each person anonymously fills a bag with objects that represent important aspects of his or her life. Everyone else will think like historians by analyzing these objects as artifacts and primary sources to make inferences about the person. Full lesson plans for 5 sessions and all necessary student pages are included.

A full, free preview is available above to help you decide if this activity will be a good fit for your classroom.
