This is a great multimedia project that I created in 4th grade, but have used it with 8th graders as well. The students take a journey through the causes of the Revolutionary War by researching each of the main issues that surrounded the colonies before gaining their independence. The students love the interaction that they receive from the PowerPoint document. It is linked to active research sites that are credible with good information, and each slide is linked to another to act as a website itself. The students record their research, site where they received the information and then create a chronological storyboard that show their understanding of the topics. I have had great luck with this project, and it spurs their creativity on subjects that can be difficult for young minds to wrap their heads around.
