A Day in History – Investigation Station is a series of fun sleuthing research and writing activities based on a single event on a specific day in history! This resource focuses on the day that Thomas Edison invented a practical electric light for home use!
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.
