Primary source analysis is a wonderful way to encourage critical thinking and bring history to life during your social studies lessons. But it can be challenging to teach elementary students to analyze and discuss primary sources. These question prompt cards and worksheets make it easy to use original sources with any lesson or unit!

Use the 7 question cards or the 2-sided worksheet with any primary source such as photographs, artwork, documents, maps, artifacts, and music or audio recordings.

Students can use the question prompts in partners or small groups as they examine and discuss various primary sources. Alternatively, you can print the questions to display in your room like anchor charts.
