Being able to talk and write about history is a practiced skill but prompts are often serious and formal. Historians like to talk about history too and many times the conversation is friendly and informal but that doesn't mean the conversations lack knowledge.

Build your student's confidence and writing skills by letting them work with fun history prompts. Some are silly. Others are simplistic and your students will amaze you with where their thoughts go.

This is a free sample of a larger resource that includes 110 different fun history writing prompts. Remember to come back and purchase the full resource.


What's Included:

  • one PDF with nine prompts from the full resource
