Historical Detectives

Polly Clip1Historical Document

Grades 4-8

January through March


Students have the hands-on opportunity to investigate how historians use primary source documents, objects and architecture as clues to life in the past. They practice being detectives as they analyze collections of artifacts and try to determine what type of site or building they might have come from. Students also tour some of the historic buildings to explore what historic structures can reveal about the past.

Curriculum Themes Addressed:
· Colonial and Revolutionary periods
· Life in the new nation
· Urbanization: economic, political, and social impacts

Skills Enhanced:
· Analysis
· Placing objects and events in context
· Building conclusions from evidence
