American History Interactive: Analyzing Artifacts

5/21/2012 By:

Annenberg Learner presents a fascinating interactive site that encourages students to become analysts of historical artifacts. Students assess five key aspects of historical analysis by discovering the creator of the artifact, the context in which it was created, the audience for whom it was created, the purpose of the artifact, and its historical significance. Quotes from primary source documents accompany the artifacts, so students can use that information to guide their choices.
