This is one of my students' favorite projects of the school year. For this social studies project, the students will create a PowerPoint for one European Country. The template teaches the students the importance of notetaking, citing their resources, and creating a focused research project. The students will learn about focus and content questions. I usually give the students one week to complete this template where they research, one week to complete the PowerPoint, and we present the following week. They bring a food in that represents their European country to share with the class the day they present. You can find these other European Lessons that I posted on TeachersPayTeachers: Rubric for PowerPoint, handout on Europe's culture, people, animals, climate and resources; PowerPoint on Europe's culture, people, animals, climate and resources; test follows the handout and PPT; Europe journal project, and maps of Europe.
