TeachersFirst's National History Day Resources

Other TeachersFirst Special Topics Collections

Whether your students actually compete in National History Day or not, the annual themes and the challenge of hands-on, primary research wrapped into the History Day project format is an engaging way for students to participate in their own learning and produce rigorous, meaningful projects they will never forget. This collection of TeachersFirst resources pulls from our offerings on primary sources -- a requirement in the national history day competition.  Check the official National History Day site at the start of each school year for the specific theme of the year. Then search TeachersFirst for more resources related to that year's theme. Explore and share these offerings as you plan a "history day" type event for your school or to assist students participating in National History Day.

This British site looks at women's roles in war time from 1900 to the present. Divided chronologically (pre-1914, WWI, WWWII, and post-1945) the site focuses on five main themes: A Woman's Place is in the Home, Woman's Work: War Work, That's no job for a woman: The Services, War Babes: Stereotypes, pin-ups and prejudice, and You have no Right: Protest and Equality. There is an image guide for each theme, lesson plans, reading lists and suggestions for further research.

tag(s): women (101), world war 1 (54), world war 2 (142)

In the Classroom

Although the focus of the site is clearly on Great Britain, the image galleries provide good primary source information. This site would be a great resource for incorporating women's roles into the study of the two World Wars in a regular Modern US History course. There is also great material for History Day projects on women's roles in wartime. The use of British terminology might be a little confusing, but also points up the different perspectives of another country, and might be useful in showing how the two World Wars were perceived outside the US. Despite the fact that the site is designed to cover up to the present time, it is not particularly useful for periods after World War II.

The National Park Service's overview of Seattle's Klondike Gold Rush Visitor Center contains links to some extremely comprehensive educational materials. Included is a integrated curriculum design for grades 3-6 consisting of 19 lessons blending history, language arts (writing and journaling), and geography. One of the lessons requires the use of the PBS film "Gold!" and one of the lessons involves a field trip to the Visitor Center. There are links to PDF versions of lesson documents, many hands-on project overviews, and comprehensive materials lists. The lessons would be easily adapted to students in higher grade levels.

tag(s): gold rush (19), westward expansion (29)

In the Classroom

Teachers in upper grades could easily pick and choose from these lessons to flesh out a unit on the Gold Rush. The link to "History and Culture" takes you to a Washington State data base of photographs and newspaper clippings that could provide good primary source material for classroom use or for History Day projects on the Gold Rush.

This collection of haunting images chronicles the lives of working children in America from 1908 through 1912. The photos, taken by Lewis Hine, reveal the dangerous and dismal conditions in factories, fields, mills, and mines across the United States. Captions provide insight into the wages, responsibilities, and ages of these young workers. A chilling glimpse of child exploitation at the dawn of the 20th century.

tag(s): air (163)

In the Classroom

Project these images in your classroom to add some visual realism to a study of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. An excellent primary source to help students understand the significance of the Fair Labor and Standards Act that eventually ended this practice.

This stunning collection of never-before-published images from the Civil Rights era puts a very human face on a painful chapter in American history. The photographs, recently discovered in a storage closet at the Birmingham News, are organized by theme and year and include detailed captions, but you must provide the background information. Topics include school segregation, voting rights, and Freedom Riders.

Much more eloquent than text book descriptions, this visual documentary of the Civil Rights era makes an outstanding primary source for student research projects. Pair with existing curriculum materials and project the images in your classroom for an anticipatory set or discussion starter.

This collection of first-person accounts, reflections, and musical offerings makes an interesting retrospective on the September 11 attacks, and one that classes can listen and react to together. These recordings could offer a variety of ways in which to focus a discussion of those events.

tag(s): sept11 (21)

In the Classroom

Use some of the first hand accounts as a way to teach both about primary sources and the events of 9/11. Divide the class into cooperative learning groups, preferably with 4-5 differing groups. Assign each group a different primary source from the site, with the intentions of presenting a summary to the class. Once all the groups have presented their summaries, play a quick game "survivor" style in which students defend their pieces by validity and reliability. Have a representative from each group go to the front of the classroom, presenting a brief argument where theirs is the most reliable source. After each has presented, have the class vote off sources in rounds until there is only one left! This is a fun way to both teach the content & incorporate historical thinking skills.

Distinctive sections provide insight on each day of the battle and allow visitors to "tour" the actual sites involved in the conflict. Students can experience the historical value of primary source information when they click on "Voices of Battle" link, which includes reminiscences from those who witnessed the bloodshed. While this site provides a beautifully detailed account of the battle, students may become bogged down by the extensive text. Use as a resource for in-class research, or as the focus of a Web hunt activity.

American society experienced a tremendous amount of change and growth during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This site is filled with primary source images from the Library of Congress and interactive exercises that bring the era to life. The "Image Detective" activity is especially impressive. After selecting a picture from the collection, students are presented with a critical question and guided through the process of gathering clues, reading background information, and drawing conclusions. The Investigations link challenges students to interact with visual sources to gain perspective and understanding. This is an outstanding resource for strengthening skills in historical research and critical thinking! The Exhibit Builder link apparently no longer functions, but students can copy images under Fair Use (check the collection information) to create a slide show or exhibit using images from the site along and their own explanatory text.

In the Classroom

Use this site as an in class activity for various units in your classroom, including the early 1900's, immigration, the roaring 20's, etc. Have students complete their investigations in pairs, having a class competition to see who can get the most right! A very fun way to review and encourage critical thinking skills.

This site chronicles the history-changing event that occurred in March of 1979 at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant. General information on nuclear energy, governmental regulations, and a timeline of events provide a basic overview of what happened before, during, and after the accident. But the most impressive feature of the site is an extensive collection of interview transcripts (audio and text) that help visitors understand how residents from all walks of life reacted to the accident. Other primary source information available on the site includes photographs, newspaper articles, and government documents. .

In the Classroom

Although text heavy, the science section of this site has some really helpful printable PDFs that explain the basics of how a powerplant works, what it does, and what went wrong in this specific incident. The first two would be relly great tutorials to review in class before discussing the Cold war or the arms race. Understanding nuclear capabilities could even help students understand the nuclear proliferation problems that are plaguing politics today. Use these PDFs to review the information and introduce new material. Very useful for a government or History classroom.
