Primary source documents, especially photographs, are powerful tools for grabbing the attention of students. Sometimes it’s challenging to find the right picture to connect to a historical fiction literature circle or to support a Social Studies lesson. I’m a big fan of Google Image searches but another option is to check out the LIFE photo archive hosted by Google. You can search over a hundred years worth of photographs by typing in a keyword or choosing a specific event or time period. This is a terrific resource for teachers who work with students of any age!
