This is a great activity for the first day of school in a US History classroom. It includes a print out questionnaire for the students to decide whether 10 statements about US History (focus is on 1900-Present day) are fact or fiction. Then there is an accompanying Powerpoint to go through with the students.
This is intended as a way to engage students about some of the topics they will be learning about in US History this year. I have used it as my introduction activity for the first day every year for the past 5 years and it does start good discussions on day one!
It is editable to fit the needs of your students!
