Today In History

There are several Internet sites that give listings of things that happened on the same day in history. These topics are great for spontaneous discussion. Print these lists out each day and eventually you will have a list for the entire year. Keep them in a "Today in History" file and use them when there's extra time, for journal topics, or simply for discussion topics.
