At the end of your unit on the Northeast Region, assign students a project that will excite them and provide varied opportunities for extension! Students will select an option from the project menu to complete. These project options touch on the history and geography of the region. Rubrics with student friendly language are included for each of the region projects. Rubrics can be used for both instructing students of project requirements and assessing their work.
Students can select a tourism brochure to report on a major Northeast City. After learning about Ellis Island or immigration in our nation's history, they can conduct interviews of local immigrants. Students can choose to memorize the Preamble of the Constitution as a way to connect with Washington D.C. and our country's history. They may even choose to make a board game to review the concepts they have learned in class.
My students select a project at the end of each region's unit. They couldn't be more excited for the new project menu to be handed out. Motivate your students with a choice of quality projects!
Look for my other US Region project packets (coming soon).
