Product Description
This bundle includes 70 activities to supplement any US history curriculum from 1877 to 2008. IT WORKS WELL WITH THE AP US HISTORY NOTES PRODUCT (over 500 pages) I also offer.

Includes scaffolds, discussions, high interest readings, reports, and essays. Many activities incorporate technology by asking students to visit websites, read and investigate history and current events.

A variety of activities are included from research projects which build to essays, essay scaffolds of differing levels built from scaffold assignments, high interest documentaries with questions, high interest readings with questions, and shorter, high interest activities.

This bundle works great in Canvas or Blackboard discussions, which is how I use most of the activities.

The inclusive list of activities is included below.
