As much as I try to come up with original strategies and activities, I know most of what I have come up with is probably already out there somewhere. I hope the items in my store are helpful in your classroom in some way. Feel free to alter my activities to fit your personal needs! I'm always looking for new and exciting ways to present historical information to high school students...whatever I come up with--I'll try to share!
