This is a power point that I created to use in my own 4th grade classroom. I have it up when the students come in to get them engaged in writing for a few minutes and to help build their background knowledge of the world that we live in.
Each day has a historical fact with the date and a picture of the events. The power point includes several different type of events including: historical people, inventions, sports, and popular culture.
This is a wonderful tool that you will be able to use for years and years. I currently only have the fall semester available because in the spring semester I begin to focus on test taking skills. I am planning on working on a spring version based on interest in this product.
