Intellectual Operation Badges and Guides

A series of badges for the I.O.s in history and geography was created to hand over to students as they practise the operations. Each badge comes with a guide you can use to learn how to "do" the Intellectual Operations with historical documents.  

Our versions of the Secondary badge guides are now available via the main LEARN site here.

(Note that the extended Elementary versions of these guides here.)

Note: All the English badge images are still available for download here.

Graphic Organizers

For convenience, we have tried to gather various organizers together and to loosely organize them around certain "Historical Thinking concepts".  Sometimes just scanning through a few of the organizers can help you to understand how to use the Intellectual Operations to sort and make sense of the knowledge you are learning.   Feel free to browse what we have collected to date here.
