Full Year US History Curriculum | Colonies to Civil War
Get kids loving history in your classroom!This is a full year US History curriculum like no other. All lessons go with videos like this one on "The Road to the Civil War" and allow you to lecture less and engage more.
With full lesson plans for all videos, you can actually spend your time connecting with and supporting students as they learn, rather than just delivering content. That means you can do what you are most effective at- actually helping students!
As students watch the videos (at their own pace!) they complete an interactive notesheet with a warm up, fill-in-the-blanks, comprehension and critical thinking questions, and a thinking map or wrap-up activity to ensure students review what they learned! These ensure students understand the history, reflect on, and think deeply about it!
FULL YEAR OF US HISTORY ENGAGING ACTIVITIES!
Next there is a quick auto-graded Google form quiz (a pdf is also available) to check for understanding and give kids instant feedback on their learning. Then there is an extension activity that gets students to dive deeper into the topic of the video. This might be a map activity, a primary source reading, an illustrative timeline, mini-DBQ, writing a post card from the perspective of a historical figure, and more! While they are fun and engaging, they also build historical thinking skills and go along with state standards (as do all the videos!). They are varied to keep kids interested and the learning fresh!
