Why Study History? Students learn why we study history in an engaging way!

In this highly engaging lesson, students understand the importance of studying history from examining the words of 12 influential people (John F Kennedy, Pearl Buck, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Mahatma Gandhi, Michael Crichton, Alexis de Tocqueville, Eleanor Roosevelt, Maya Angelou, Adolf Hitler, Martin Luther King Jr, Winston Churchill, and more!).  

Students examine 12 quotes about the importance of history from 12 influential people to understand why this subject is worth studying. Students complete a 2-page chart as they analyze each quote and explain why it matters, then students complete a short writing prompt where they explain why history is important!

This is a great activity to introduce history at the beginning of the school year!  

Enjoy!
