This product has been updated to incorporate the 2017 National History Day Theme of "Taking a Stand in History." It is designed for middle school students doing History Day Projects for the first time. These and similar pages were invaluable in getting my 6th graders started with the sometimes daunting tasks of: understanding the theme, picking a topic, choosing an entry category, writing a bibliography, doing the research, and writing the process paper. The rewards of participating in National History Day make all challenges worthwhile!
Graphic Organizers and reading comprehension passages include:
Thinking about History (of ourselves, our school, state, country)
The History of History Day
Understanding the 2017 Theme: "Taking a Stand in History"
Picking an entry format
Picking a Topic
Writing a Bibliography
