This is a lesson that I used in my middle school classroom to introduce and learn the importance of primary and secondary sources.
Notes cover: Definition and examples of primary and secondary sources, why they are important, investigation questions to ask when analyzing sources, and the definition of bias.
Activity 1: Venn diagram where students sort different sources into the correct bubble (printable for students and interactive google slide included)
Activity 2: Power write that allows students to reflect on the importance of each type of source.
Quests are designed to have students further explore primary and secondary sources in a group setting while you act as a facilitator.
This lesson is designed to be a jumping off point for a deeper dive into primary and secondary sources.
