What is the Difference Between Then and Now?

Historians are observant. In this lesson, students will observe primary source images or familiar objects from the past and match them with similar objects from today. Students will have the opportunity to make personal connections and organize evidence to help them answer the mystery question: “What’s the difference between then and now?"

A narrated slide deck is now available for this Mystery!
