Florida History Online: An Introduction to the Teacher’s Guide

This teacher’s guide is designed to accompany the Florida History Online website.  Materials are intended to be age appropriate by grade level, for elementary, middle school, and high school students.  Student activities are directed to help students develop analytical skills at all grade levels.  By incorporating reading, movement, research and higher level thinking, teachers can help students achieve lifelong learning.

Using the Florida History Online web pages listed above, teachers can design student activities to bring history alive.  Students are asked to act as historians as they examine historical evidence in the form of primary source document on the various web pages.  Teachers are encouraged to assign research projects and/or to role-play the actions of the early settlers of Florida.
