This is a one page lesson plan (with lesson enhancement ideas) that teaches history through cemetery. It contains a QR code and instructions. Students are taken to the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo, NY's website. Then, they will view the three minute video about teaching history through cemetery. Finally, they will write a paragraph in reflection of the video. The use of iPads would be necessary to complete this activity or the teacher could show the video to the class with the use of a projector and reflect.
Within the lesson, there is an activity where students will view a Cemetery Symbolism chart. A class discussion will follow about tombstones. There are field trip suggestions and extension activities in the lesson as well.
There are also 10 original photographs that can are free to use even commercially.
