For this fun project students will be tasked with creating a movie poster about the life of a Civil War figure. This allows students to be creative in their design and requires them to conduct some basic research on any person from the Civil War era. The project is setup to work with Google Slides but you can modify this to work with PowerPoint or have students complete it on paper. Here is a basic rundown of what students have to complete:
1) Complete a creative and catchy movie poster
2) Create a summary slide detailing their chosen Civil War person's life
3) A slide dedicated to how this person was viewed in the North and/or South
4) Final slide explaining what actor will play the main role in your fictional film
This project downloads as a Microsoft Word document and is 100% editable. Please modify to meet your needs!
