Product Description

A great way for students to understand an event more in-depth and also develop researching skills! Works for any event! Lots of Common Core connections.

Description:

- Students choose an event that has been studied in class. They must summarize the basics of the event, find a primary and a secondary source and then complete a comparison section analyzing the two sources.

The Activity:

Introduction

  • Students watch a brief video providing a basic overview of the differences between a primary and secondary source.

Step 1: The Event
