This freebie will help your elementary students understand primary and secondary sources. This difficult concept is brought to the basic level they need to understand these two sources. Students write about an experience they have had personally, like experiencing a hurricane first hand, watching a great athletic event, or experiencing a political moment. Then they find and supply a newspaper or magazine article to support their experience. This easy to use product also comes in two levels-basic (2nd and 3rd) and advanced (4th-6th)!
