When it comes to teaching history at the elementary level, most kids seem really disinterested, especially when it comes to primary sources.
But I believe primary sources can be an engaging way for kids to actually enter into the stories of the past!
This series of lessons was designed as a totally different approach to introducing primary sources. (AND history!)
It gets kids directly involved in the process of using primary sources, but more importantly it lays a FOUNDATION and purpose that will last beyond your time with them...
1. Very explicit teacher directions.
2. Two-three days worth of engaging lesson ideas.
3. A follow-up sheet for review.
4. A primary source list and other internet helps.
