PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There is a brief article or two is included at the beginning of each of the packets. A graphic organizer is included to help students research and take notes on their findings. The pictures included are historical, but also include many memorable moments from recent history.

**Note- I don't always use this type of activity as a research project. I also use this as a jigsaw activity. I will have buddies take one picture, read about the topic, fill out the speech bubbles, and then present this to the class. I have also used this over an entire week during our center time.

Students will then take a look at a photograph and think "What Were they saying?" by filling in speech and thought bubbles that are embedded into each of the themed pictures and photographs (most of which are directly from the Library of Congress).

On the back of each of the pictures there is information about the picture, as well as a graphic organizer which they will fill in based on "What they see, What they Know, and What they still have questions about."

This is a student-centered, interactive activity that kids will have fun with, while also using their researching skills to discover more information on these topics.

Included in this are also two options for final assessment. Students can either complete the research-based essay or a presentation where students will teach the class the information he/she learned throughout.

Students will have no choice but to use their critical thinking skills during this interactive history project.

Each of these packets are listed in my store for $4.00 each, so by purchasing the bundle you are saving $14!!

Thank you for looking!
