Get your students excited about historical sources! This lesson plan introduces your students to primary sources in a hands-on, experiential, and highly relatable fashion.
In this lesson, students will reflect on the “evidence” created in daily modern life; use documents and artifacts to make inferences about a source’s owner; and gain experience handling historical documents and/or artifacts.
This lesson plan addresses National Council for the Social Studies Standards and Common Core State Standards.
Pair this lesson plan with my "Historical Sources" PowerPoint for an extra powerful unit on historical sources.
