History bell ringer journal for the entire school year including 275 journal prompts for middle and high school students.

This product provides teachers with an entire school year of journal prompts in an organized and focused way. The prompts are based on American History facts & trivia from 1900-2000. The journal is organized by month with 25 entries per section. Specifically, they are organized by DECADE (example: 1940-1950 is the month of April). Students will strengthen their history, writing, and critical thinking skills with these unique, higher level thinking bell ringers. NOTE: This bell ringer journal has COMPLETELY different prompts from my ELA bell ringer journals.

NOTE: This product requires students to do some research. Students will need the resources to research some of the topics in order to respond.
