What a FUN way to get students involved in processing contributions of key historical figures in history class! It works great in interactive notebooks or any other class format! In this history investigation students research and write a brief historical biography about 5 historical figures.
This is a great project for G+T students in fifth and sixth grade. Variations I have done include working individually and letting the students choose anywhere in the world they would like their country to be. The geography and climate of their portion of the earth affects the other aspects, such as history, customs, foods, etc.
European Vacation Project is a fun way for World History students to sum up their European history by traveling to Europe! This is a wonderful project to end of the year in World History class - one of my favorites! Students research a summer trip to Europe and present their fun to the class. You will need online access to computers, iPads etc. Students can use PowerPoint, Google slide or any other slide show app. Rubric and Warm-up questions included.
