Product Description
This is an "Introduction to History" lesson I use when first teaching history. It addresses a question I get frequently from students- "how do we know that's what happened?"

The presentation covers how historians use primary and secondary sources and provides a few examples. The presentation also covers how geographers, archaeologists, and anthropologists contribute to our understanding of past events.

Terms covered include history, historian, prehistory, primary source, secondary source, geographer, cartography, anthropologist, archaeologist, and carbon dating.

A free worksheet that can be used with this presentation can be found here: Introduction to History Worksheet.

Another free worksheet covering primary and secondary sources can be found here: Primary or Secondary Source Worksheet.
