History Mystery Labs
1 hour lessons where students examine a variety of sources, both primary and secondary, to reach a conclusion. They must integrate multiple forms of information from maps to video clips and defend their conclusions with cited evidence from the exhibits.
These labs address the following CCSS standards:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RH.6-8.1 - Citing textual evidence
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RH.6-8.4 - Content Vocabulary
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RH.6-8.7 - Integrating multiple sources
The labs are highly engaging and are one of the few opportunities students are given to truly be historians.
