Product Description
This project was developed in conjunction with the 100 year anniversary of Vimy. I wanted to do something different that would help students understand the significance of Vimy and also the human experience of those who fought. Basically, I wanted it to be more real for them.

This is not a simple project, but rather one that is intended to be challenging. The local soldier research portion will be especially challenging for students, but also very rewarding when the realize these were real people who fought and died.

Below is a breakdown of how the project works:

Project Content:

- Students will gather a variety of primary and secondary sources on Vimy Ridge. These range from original pictures to artwork and poetry.
- Students will also research a local soldier of the Great War (preferably one who fought at Vimy). This is the most meaningful part of the project. Students will find the soldier's enlistment papers online, research about where the soldier served and gather many other important items on the soldier. Since this is a challenging task a full page of suggestions is provided to help students get started.
- In addition, there is a project reflection portion where students evaluate deeper thinking questions.

Project Design

- Students have four differentiated options in how they design their project (eg. portfolio, poster board, scrapbook or website).

Other items:

- A daily planner is included along with a research guide and very clear rubric.
