Docs That Teach

I came across Docs That Teach this morning (Thanks to @SuzanneWisler)

Docs That Teach

The site is divided into three parts:

1) Activities

  • Find and use Activities created by other educators.
  • Create  your own Activities

Each activity-creation tool helps students develop historical thinking skills and gets them thinking like historians. Choose one of the tools below to begin. Then find and insert primary sources and customize the activity to fit your unique students.

2) Documents- Select from 3000+ primary sources for use in classroom activities

Primary Sources

We have selected thousands of primary source documents to bring the past to life as classroom teaching tools from the billions preserved at the National Archives. Use the search field above to find written documents, images, maps, charts, graphs, audio and video in our ever-expanding collection that spans the course of American history.

3) Account- Being logged in allows you to bookmark documents and activities to access, use and create later.

The site was created by the Foundation of National Archives and offers even more  resources for teachers:
