Product Description
The first lesson introduces students to the historical process and assesses student background knowledge of the historical thinking skills. Students are assessed in small groups using matching manipulatives. Students will match a historical thinking skill to its definition, associated words, and an image. This lesson includes an application homework assignment where students will match statements about the Declaration of Independence to a historical thinking skill.

The second lesson allows students to mimic the historical process through a "checks" simulation, commonly called "Ordeal by Cheque". Students will try to tell a story about a fictional couple using only their bank checks. Afterwards, students will make connections to the historical thinking skills by describing the ways in which they used the historical thinking skills in the activity.

Historical Thinking Skills Include:

cause & effect
compare & contrast
change & continuity over time
periodization
contextualization
categorization
inferencing
generalizations

This package comes with 2 completed lesson plans, student handouts, master copies for all manipulatives, and homework handouts, and a powerpoint that includes warm-ups, instructions for students & teachers, and closures. All you need to do is make the copies!

This lesson has been teacher tested and student approved - it helps set the bar for the entire year!

Answer keys are included for each handout and questioning/procedures recommendations are on the lesson plan.
