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 in April are:
*The Salk Polio Trials
*Jane Fonda Releases "Workout"
*The First Earth Day
*The Columbine High School Tragedy
*Abraham Lincoln Is Shot at Ford's Theater in Washington, D.c.
*The $2.00 Bill Is Introduced
*The Beatles Break Up
*Prince Charles Marries Camilla Parker Bolles
*Kurt Cobain Dies
*Julius and Ethel Rosenberg Are Sentences to Die
*Martin Luther King, Jr. Is Assassinated
What is included in this product:
*This in History PowerPoint slide for each day of the month of AprilMarch with a link to a video students may view.
*Simple Scoring Rubric (optional)
