Product Description
In this activity, students will be colonial journalists assigned with the task of covering Bacon's Rebellion and the issue of indentured servitude.

The project requires students to:
-Conduct research to gather facts

-"Interview" people meaning they need to locate primary source documents to cite in their article

-Write a "newspaper" article using this information and input into a newspaper format that they create which should be have elements that are historically relevant

This activity is a fun way to get students thinking about Bacon's Rebellion as well as developing a structure that can be useful when writing research papers.

This can be a group assignment or individual.

I have attached the Word document so that you may alter the assignment to fit the needs of your classroom.
