Are you looking for Grade 8 History lessons for the Ontario Curriculum?
History is one of my favorite content areas to teach. I have created some engaging and interactive lessons for teachers who are required to teach this curriculum.
When creating lessons I think about how students learn best and what activities will engage them in their learning. These lesson plans are not worksheets, but a combination of interactive activities, videos, readings and inquiry assignments.
Your students will love these lessons as it incorporates activities for students of all learning styles! I took ideas from these lessons to write this blog post 10 Ways To Make History Class Engaging.
