Collaboratively Exploring History

How does it work?

The experience includes 4 scenes dedicated to each figure
(8 total) that students can explore. These scenes represent important moments in the figures’ lives. Each room is designed to take one 45 minute class period to complete. The scene will start off by tasking each student with finding a primary source artifact. In order to do so, students need to explore the environment and talk with the characters. Once they have discovered all the information necessary to move forward they will be asked to fill in the missing blanks from the passage. After each student completes their task, they will then analyze a primary source document as a group, and answer a final CFU.
