    Teach middle school? Save time in your day by having students practice comprehension, grammar, sentence structure, vocabulary, and more all while also reading nonfiction historical events.

    This Day in History Bell Ringers is one page for students to complete every day of the year. Students read the nonfiction passage that is based on a historical event that happened that same day in history. Then they answer 2-4 questions (depending on the day) about the passage. These questions range from reading comprehension, grammar, sentence structure, etc. Students can complete the whole thing individually and then you can go over it with them when they are done.

    The topics are aligned to Common Core Standards for grades 5-7, though 8th grade could complete it as a review. I would caution using this product for any student below 5th grade as the historical topics can sometimes be a bit heavy.

    As with my This Day in History Calendar, these topics cover world-wide events; however, the focus is more on American history than any other country and would probably be best for American schools.
