Product Description

Do your students truly understand why they are taking a history class!? Why not teach them in a fun activity? Turn your students into historians as they dig through artifacts, analyze primary sources and read information about history. This lesson guides your students through an activity where they debate the importance of history in their lives, examine artifacts, analyze primary sources, read an article and create Cartoon Notes. The lesson concludes with a spectrum discussion or a dialogue debate. Avoid the lecture – let students learn for themselves!

Your purchase includes:

- A PowerPoint presentation to guide your students through the lesson.

- Word Wall Terms and a "Predict This" activity to teach vocabulary terms.

- An article with guiding questions on the topic – Why Study History?

- A lesson plan that guides you through the activity

- Artifacts from Abraham Lincoln to analyze during the activity

- Historical figures to create Pop Up Experts for graphic note taking

- Updated in 2018 to include Cartoon Notes!

Do you need this lesson for elementary students or your ELL students? You can find a modified version of the lesson here. It has been written at a 5th grade level (Lexile 1000).

The third grade version can be found here.

You can read a detailed blog post on how to use this lesson on my blog here.
