Hooray! This project is fully funded

We are a third grade class in the Bronx seeking support for materials so we can further our Social Studies work. We have located a wonderful student activity book which will enable students to learn how to examine and interpret 'original' historical documents. The 75-page Primary Source activity book includes examples of a poster, a song, an advertisement, a political cartoon and a map, to name a few, and helps students learn how to look at a variety of documents. These activities will help students develop their observation and analytical skills and will help them connect to history by learning about documents from the past.
