Explore the role that objects play in communicating the stories of our past with this simple worksheet.
Objects are historical sources that can tell stories about our past.
This worksheet provides your students with the opportunity to share an object from their family’s past, then describe its importance.
Students can draw a picture of the object, or attach a photograph of it.
Why not ask your students to bring their special objects to school to add to a class museum of family history!
