I have attached a list of suggested topics, timeline and rubric to assist the children as they progress through the project. The timeline will guide them through an organized and well planned preparation for their oral presentations and it must be adhered to. The length of the actual presentation should be approximately 5 minutes. Students should share a wealth of information with classmates. Please encourage your child to do extensive reading on his/her chosen topic.
During the actual presentation, the children may refer to note cards of bulleted notes to assist them in remembering names, dates, events, etc. but they may not read the information directly. The students are required to utilize a visual aid when presenting the report. The aid may include: PowerPoint, Prezi, Keynote, Google Presentation, poster, demonstration, display board, model, timeline, collage, diorama, or any original idea related to the topic. Students are required to submit a paper bibliography of three sources on the day they present their oral report. It is recommended that at least one of the sources be a book.
I hope this assignment will prove to be enjoyable as well as enriching.
