In this unit, students will complete four historical mysteries by exploring primary sources and answering the following questions with evidence, 1)Where is the history in a name? 2) What shared traditions make your family special? 3)Why do we have a day off from school? 4) How does a tradition become a holiday? Students will explore naming traditions, family traditions, civic versus religious holiday and lastly, the story of Juneteenth and how it has become a holiday celebrated across America.
