Document Detectives

Document Detectives
Using primary source documents students will discover some major differences between colonial American writing and that of the 21st century. Working in small groups, students will explore pre-standarized English and learn to decipher missing pieces of an 18th century document; filling in the gaps with their own quill pen. Equipped with this enriched knowledge, students will be able to extrapolate historical evidence from primary sources.

Time Needed: 1 ½ hour     Grade Levels: 3-7
