    Why Study History?

    Do your students truly understand why they are taking a history class!? Why not teach them in a fun activity? Turn your students into historians as they dig through artifacts, analyze primary sources and read information about history. This lesson guides your students through an activity where they debate the importance of history in their lives, examine artifacts, analyze primary sources, read a handout and create a spectrum .


    Artifact Introduction

    Try something different for the first day of school this year – introduce yourself through artifacts! Turn your students into historians as they dig through artifacts to discover the truth about a mysterious individual – their new teacher.


    First Day of School

    SAVE YOUR VOICE on the first day of school and engage your students! For years I talked my way through my classroom rules and syllabus. By the end of the first day of school I was exhausted! Then I thought “Why am I doing all of the work? The kids should be the ones who are tired!” I came up with the idea to have my students go on a “Scavenger Hunt” the first day of school. It is fun for them and easy for you!


    Classroom Jobs

    Classroom jobs can be a time saver in your classroom – for both you and your students. This classroom job system has been used for over 20 years in my classroom. I have shared it with many teachers, and it works with grades 4-10.


    Creating Quality Interactive Student Notebooks

    Try this activity with your students to improve not only the quality of your Interactive Student Notebooks, but the overall quality of assignments turned in!


    Textbook Scavenger Hunt

    It guides your students through an analysis of their textbook features and its organizational systems to help guide student learning. This Textbook Scavenger Hunt can be used with any textbook!


    Interactive Student Notebook Starter’s Kit.

    In this activity you will receive a presentation that reviews the Interactive Student Notebook with images as examples for the different elements. In addition to the presentation, I have included a variety of different evaluations and handouts I use at the beginning of the year – and I have left them all editable for you.


    Groups Work!

    Get your groups to WORK with student contracts, group assessments and more!
