This is a fun and interactive way for students to put their research to work! This activity normally takes two class periods and has students researching leaders and historical figures from World War I (WWI) with guiding research questions. Students then creating a name tag and a 1 Minute "Date" speech as that person before participating in the speed "dating" activity. Great way to get history students researching, creating, collaborating, and communicating!
This activity includes all student worksheets in PDF format, step by step instructions for teachers, and a editable Google Slides presentation for the both research day and activity day. The presentation is also available as a PDF for those who use Nearpod or other presentation software.
