I start each class with a journal and discussion based on a historical event that happened each day in history. This is a fantastic way to engage students in more material than just the standards or reading you scheduled for the day. Students get their minds warmed up to thinking, practice writing, and learn something "extra" for their day in history! It also sparks great conversations.
Save 30% by getting the winter pack of December, January, and February journals combined:
This resource contains a month's classes worth of journals for December. There are probably a few additional topics given most schools go on break. Be on the lookout for my other months as well!

December features historical topics including music (John Lennon and Otis Redding), historical events (U.S. History), medical advances, and a lot more! If you want a certain theme for a month, contact me for a custom quote.
Multiple question prompts are given for each event, so it can work on many levels of depth and catch students interested in different portions of each prompt. Lines are given for writing space and easy printer to student writing or projecting to the room like I do.
