This Important People of the Turn of the Century Brochure Project is a class favorite. I love how my students work together in small groups to complete one finished product.
You will receive a directions sheet, a rubric, and an easily editable Power Point brochure template.
The purpose is to create a brochure highlighting six important people of the Turn of the Century. The people are: 1. The Wright Brothers 2. Thomas Edison 3. George Washington Carver 4. Alexander Graham Bell 5. Henry Ford 6. Theodore Roosevelt.
We pretend that we are a group of scientists and historians who have cooperatively built a time machine. Unfortunately, no one wants to try it out. So the scientists and historians decide to create an interesting and informative brochure about some of the people that you might visit while on a time machine tour.
I split my class into 6 teams of 4-5 students. Each team gets one of the important people to research and write about (brochure entry). All six entries are then combined into one final product/brochure.
