Who killed JFK? - 18-page full lesson (notes, card sort, history mystery matrix)

This is one of my most detailed resources. Students are given a pack of 15 large information cards offering information as to how and why President Kennedy was assassinated and are encouraged to write their findings on the mystery sheets provided at the end of the pack. This is one of my very best lessons and has been designed to encourage students to think, question, collaborate and take risks. During this lesson students will explore the possibility that there was more to JFK’s death than the lone gunman theory and will offer alternatives using precisely selected evidence. I really look forward to delivering this lesson each year and who knows, if President Trump releases the remaining JFK files the mystery could widen! I really hope you enjoy teaching this topic and that you find it gets your students truly acting as young Historians should.

Save for later
