Why History?Today we started an activity about looking at how and why we study history. We took some time to look at the importance of thinking like detectives while using primary resources to explain and learn from past events.

We started by looking at a series of photos and documents that all impact the content of 4th and 5th grade.  Step one today was to decide which pictures go with what grade. The rest of this week we will start digging deeper and use clues to discover the story behind each resourcePhoto by Tim SwickPhoto by Tim SwickPhoto by Tim SwickPhoto by Tim Swick
