Product Description
This is a project that asks students to choose a historical figure and make a laptop that represents a deep understanding of this historical figure as well aas the time period during which he or she was alive.

The pages of this booklet include directions for the following:
• Write a word document posing as this historical figure which lists important facts from his or her life, as well as relevant facts from the time period during which he or she was alive
• Pick a YouTube video this historical figure might want to watch and make suggestions for other videos he or she might find interesting
• Create a Facebook post written by this historical figure and write imagined responses from relevant other people or literary characters
• Choose a physical location that might have importance for this individual which he or she might search on Google Maps
• Select an image this historical figure might post to their Instagram account and write imagined responses from relevant other people or literary characters

Each activity in this booklet is accompanied by questions that encourage students to explain their choices in greater detail, revealing what they know about this historical figure and the deeper understanding of the relevant historical era that led to their design choices. Each tab featured in the booklet is also accompanied by a detailed explanation of the function of that website, encouraging successful completion of this activity even by students who may not be familiar with each website featured within.

Pages are meant to be printed double-sided to create a 6-page booklet. Additionally, the preview here on TPT can be downloaded and printed to act as a ready-made sample to show your class as you roll out this project. Please note that some pages may need to be copied upside-down to achieve correct orientation in finished packets.
