The History Lab, 3-12
The History Lab offers teachers a template for creating primary source based lessons and activities for their students. The completed labs are archived for use by anyone. Registration is required but it is free.

This site offers teachers a framework for teaching history through primary sources. Teachers simply complete a fill in the blank template and choose the available resources and primary documents to create the lab. Teachers can store their lessons in the History Lab database and retrieve or modify them at any time. The archive of labs includes lessons in American history, world history, ancient history, and European history. Included is a resource section that can be used for creating the labs or just for teaching with primary sources. It includes links for each of the history topics as well as multimedia sites.

Remember the following Heartland online databases also contain primary source documents: EBSCO, SIRS, World Book Web.
