    Introduction to History
          In the Introduction to History unit, students learn that history can be studies through primary sources. We will look at artifacts, examine photographs, analyze documents, and conduct interviews. We gather as much information as we can from these sources by noticing deeply and reflecting on what each source tells us about the life and times of the people it affected.
         Below are some websites where you can find more primary sources to examine.
