I have great news for your students! They have been hired to plan a party to help promote how awesome Social Studies is!! This party planning will keep them so busy during the end of school they won't have time to drive you crazy! The great news is they don't have to worry about nitpicky budgeting and math. The goal for this activity is to inspire creativity and the love of SS!! And shhh, don't tell your party planners they have to do a little justifying their thinking in writing!
So as part of their contract, they have to complete the following tasks:
*come up with an event name and logo
*plan a location, menu, activities, and ticket price
*design an invitation
*design a t-shirt and sign
*book a celebrity guest
*pick a museum, historical society, or restoration project to donate proceeds to
*create a hashtag
*come up with a goody bag/swag bag and prizes
Then they have to develop a social media promotion plan! Talk about high interest! My Social Media Cheat Sheet is included! I have also included teacher tips and a list of historical charity links. Let your learners have some time for creativity while getting a sneak peek at basic entrepreneurship (without the budgeting), graphic design, event planning, and social media marketing!
