We often ask students to analyze evidence and to think historically. But these are skills that often need scaffolding. We’ve printed historical thinking questions along the edges of heavy duty plastic sheets that your students place on top of photos, documents, and other pieces of evidence. Kids then use dry erase or overhead pens to connect questions with evidence found in the document.
The Window Frame is great way to encourage historical thinking, develop analysis abilities, and support literacy skills. Be sure to select either the Elementary or Secondary version!
