Product Description
A great assignment for early in the school year, this 3-day group project includes geography, collaborative research, map-making, and writing. This is an excellent way to assess your new students on writing, research, group dynamics, and geography -- all while previewing significant events they will study later in the school year.

For the project, students choose a group that has migrated en masse in US history, like the Great Migration of African Americans, or the California Gold Rush, and study the causes and effects of the migration.

This project was developed for ESL students in high school, but can be adapted for native speakers and younger students.

This download includes:
• A basic PowerPoint presentation that you can adapt to meet the needs of your instruction, with tips for you in the "notes" sections of the slides.
• A graphic organizer for students to use as they conduct their research.
• 2 rubrics: 1 for the map, and 1 for the written work
• An optional essay assignment, adapted from the New York State Regents Exam for US History (January 2009 exam).
