Working With Older Students

Extend this idea into a larger project for older students by using the ideas below.

Telling It Like It Was

Do you have a family treasure that tells a story? Or is there an interesting monument, building or site if your town? Choose an intriguing object and interview people who can tell you about it. This could be an object you have always loved, or maybe it is something so familiar you have never really thought about it before.

Either way, start to look at it with a historian's eye: Where did this come from? And how can you tell others its story?
