For January 15, 2008: There are times when we simply have to "hold" a resource, touch it, and see it firsthand. Since most students and teachers do not have the opportunity to visit all of the various libraries that house primary source documents, it is important to bring that experience to your classroom. Primary source tool kits can do this! And the Library of Congress’ Primary Source Tool Kit webpage will show you how. On this page you will find examples of items to place in the tool kit and how to handle photographs, sound recordings, and documents. Students will be fascinated with the information.
