Grades 4-8 | History San José presents History Detectives - Oct 1, 2020 1:10pm EDT
About this event:
How do historians ask questions, find evidence, and solve mysteries about the past? History San José guides students as they do “the work” of history detectives by actively inspecting primary sources from History San José’s Collection Center. Students will conduct important research and investigate the mystery behind a 19th-century painting of a boy. Students will formulate questions, identify historical materials, evaluate the data, and report their findings. Through this inquiry-based exercise, they will hone important critical thinking skills and learn that solving the mysteries of the past requires certain procedures and tons of imagination.
