The goal of this project is to give students a fun and creative way to show their learning. It gives students the freedom to be creative and show their unique talents.
For this project, students will be placed into groups and assigned a region of the 13 colonies to research (New England, Middle, and Southern). After completing the required research for their region, students will create a news report where they act as reporters and describe events happening in their region. After students record and edit their report, they will share what they have learned by presenting it to the class.
If the technology to create videos is not available, students can create a newspaper with different articles covering the required topics instead.
