Give your students a bell ringer activity they will enjoy. Your students will look forward to the beginning of class each and every day with these journal prompts based upon historical events. Not only will your students receive a prompt based on "This Day in History," but they will learn more about the topic via a video link. The video links are optional, but with most videos ranging from 1-3 minutes, I am confident you will want to extend the learning. For your convenience, I have rounded the running time of the videos to the nearest minute, so you can determine if you will be able to incorporate the video into your lesson that day. Some of the topics to explore this year are:
*Martin Luther King, Jr.
*Secretariat Wins the Triple Crown
*Robert Kennedy Is Assassinated
*The First Newbery Medal Recipient
*The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act
*The GI Bill
*Carol King's First #1 Hit as a Performer
*Film Critic Roger Ebert Is Born
*The Statue of Liberty Arrives in New York Harbor
*The First Roller Coaster in America
*The Academy Awards
*The Diary of Anne Frank
What is included in this product:
*This Day in History PowerPoint slide for each day of the month (from August through June) with a link to a video students may view.
*Simple Scoring Rubric (optional)
