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 a great way to encourage historical thinking, develop analysis abilities, and support literacy skills. Be sure to select either the Elementary or Secondary version!
