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.
