15 New Primary Source Activities on DocsTeach

DocsTeach has been one of my go-to places for U.S. History lessons since the day that I first discovered it years ago. Not only does DocsTeach host a large, curated collection of primary source documents it also offers templates for developing online activities about those documents. Additionally, DocsTeach offers hundreds of premade primary source lesson activities. 

Just in time for the start of the new school year DocsTeach has published fifteen new activities for students. The list of new activities includes lessons that are appropriate for elementary school, middle school, and high school students. 

At the top of the list of new DocsTeach activities you’ll find Get to Know Your Three Branches of Government. This activity is designed for elementary school and middle school students. In the activity students have to look at primary source images and documents then place them into the branch of government that it relates to. 

A new DocsTeach activity for high school students centers around primary source documents related to the Vietnam War. In The Vietnam War Timeline activity students read the documents then sort them into chronological order from 1956 to 1975. 

A complete list of all of the new DocsTeach activities can be found in their most recent newsletter

On a related note, here’s my video overview of how to create and distribute your own primary source activities via DocsTeach.
