This is a fun research assignment that uses a scavenger hunt style. Students use provided internet links to answer questions and create a slideshow about the day they were born! Questions refer to their actual birth year, as well as other years throughout history. They will find news events from their birth date, facts about people they share a birthday with, popular music and movies from the year they were born, sports facts from the year they were born, and more!

Clickable links have been provided for classrooms with the ability to share this digital file with their students. For the classrooms that prefer (or need) to print out a hard copy for their students to refer to, the URL has been provided as well.

Recommended for students in grades 4-8.

Students will need access to the internet as well as to a slideshow program such as Power Point, Keynote, Google Presentations, Open Office Impress, LibreOffice Impress, etc.

Copies may be made for a single classroom only. Digital file may be shared with single class of students, only. Distribution of materials is strictly prohibited. You may not post or store electronic copies on any system shared with others (websites, blogs, shared folders or drives). Products may not be emailed or shared with other adults or professionals; please direct interested parties to my TPT store:
