Social Studies: Primary and Secondary Sources

Students assess the information contained in primary and secondary sources and discuss the differences between them. They examine the diary of a World War I soldier with a textbook account to determine the validity of each. As a learning game, teams of students draw short descriptions of sources and determine if they are primary or secondary source types.

Lesson Planet has helped me find lessons that add to my curriculum. It is also a great website to use when one needs to search for certain topics and how to introduce those topics, it also gives a lot of options for varied learners.
