This is a lesson plan and template for an assignment called Investigation History. It is based off the tv shows and series from Investigation Discovery. It is a short research assignment in which students should do their own investigation on a topic (ex. the Assassination of Julius Caesar, the Attack on Pearl Harbor) and they draw their own conclusions on why it happened. They take on the role of the investigator, research and then present their findings and conclusion.
The bundle includes directions, template, example, rubric, scale and common core standards.
This is a great assignment to get kids motivated while also having fun and learning!
