"The Story Behind the Boston Massacre" is a great documentary from Discovery Education. It's available on United Streaming, and I even found it on YouTube. Scientists and historians analyze evidence and accounts of the event and try to figure out what really happened. My students were glued to the screen!
Melissa from Wild About Fifth Grade led me to another one of my new favorites a couple years ago. "Too Late To Apologize: A Declaration" is a satirical video based on One Republic's "Apologize". If you have never seen this, you must watch it!
Sorry, One Republic, I prefer this version...an electric guitar playing Ben Franklin?! Who can beat that? Your kids will ask to watch it over and over!
I created a handout to go along with the video...
that you can grab for free at my TPT Store! Enjoy!
