A broad collection of lesson plans are available below. These lesson plans cover each of the eras covered in the IOWH website and suggest ways to interact with the web site for individual, small group and whole class engagement. Whichever era or method chosen, students will benefit from familiarizing themselves with the icons that appear on each map and completing the skills lessons for each type of resource represented by the icons.
For ease of use, the lesson plans have been divided by theme. Click on the themes below to explore available lesson plans for a variety of ages (elementary school to high school AP/IB classes).
If you would like to submit your own lesson plan to be featured here, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
