Product Description
Do your students need to practice analyzing primary sources?
Is your state test full of primary sources?

If you answered "yes" to either of these questions, this packet is for you!

I created these pages because my state's social studies assessment uses many primary sources but our textbook contains only one or two primary source activities. My students definitely need more exposure and practice with primary sources!

I created these for use with my fifth grade students. However, based on my experience in several different grade levels, I believe they could be used in higher or lower grade levels with careful implementation.
