History Mystery :The Case of the Depression-Era Photographer
Biographies + Research + Puzzles = A Really Fun Activity for Secondary Students!
Need a fun way to do a biographical review? Like to engage your students in independent research? My History Mysteries are just the ticket. We all know how much students love mysteries and puzzles, and documentary photographer Dorothea Lange is a fascinating person for them to investigate.
History Mysteries are perfect for a center, homework, or a parent and child collaboration project. History Mysteries help build a foundation of biographical knowledge. With these activities, the goal is to identify a notable American by solving clues that require students to perform a small amount of research. Provided in the packet is an attractive poster for the bulletin board, a number of visually appealing clue sheets as well as historical background information for the teacher. Everything you need to add this fun activity to your week is included.
Many teachers like to stage History Mystery contests on a weekly basis for extra credit. Entry sheets are also included.
There is also a discounted bundle of History Mysteries!
