Historical Searches

Found in: researching; technology tools

I designed two Internet searches that introduce students to internet searching and two great Americans, one is a Civil War hero, Joshua Chamberlain and the other is an American Indian, Chief Joseph. When they have successfully completed the activity, students have to select a search of their own.

They must investigate a technology developed between A.D. 1740 and 1900 and determine its societal impact. Furthermore, they need to learn if the technology is still used and how it has changed to meet the needs of today's society.

Students enjoy doing the searches and find that technology they experience every day has not always been available.
