    A Day in History – Investigation Station is a series of fun sleuthing research activities based on a single event on a specific day in history! This investigation centers around the establishment of the U.S. Treasury Department in 1789. Exploration ideas include investigating the first Secretary of Treasury, the history of the treasury building and the duties and functions of the department.

    Students will learn about an event and be given several topics from which to choose to ‘investigate’. After some exploration, students are asked to write what they have discovered and name used sources.

    So…with each lesson, students will:
    ▪ (Read) Learn one ‘On this Day in History’ fact.
    ▪ (Investigate) Take a related topic and explore it through the use of different forms of media (i.e. books, internet).
    ▪ (Write) Summarize and write what they have discovered. This also should include the recording of sources.

    Your students want to learn and they love when given a chance to take charge of their learning! That is why I’ve created this U.S. Elections themed resource that will give them the opportunities they need to take charge, make decisions, collaborate and learn…all while creating a wonderful project! This resource will give the students the opportunity to learn about different aspects of U.S. elections (whether local or national) and at the same time give them choices as to what they want (or need) to focus on. It will also give them the opportunity to choose how they want to work (alone or in a group) and how they present their findings (notebooking or lapbooking).

    Of course, if you as the teacher, want (or need) to assign specifics and give them less control, you can do that as well. This resource is flexible!

    Whether it is an election year or not, if you are studying the U.S. Electoral College, this is a great resource for your classroom.

    Suggestions for Use:
    * If it is an election year, you can assign it for students to complete on election night.
    * Not an election year? You can still use it! Simply assign students to complete the assignment for a specific presidential election.
    * Study a variety of past presidential elections in U.S. History and how the electoral college voted! This would be a wonderful cooperative groups activity where each group completed (and reported their findings) on a different election.
