In this social studies and technology project, students pick a special place in their state to research. They complete the included outline as they research online and using books. The research can be completed at home or at school. Students then use the included direction sheet for creating an 11 slide PowerPoint about their place to use during their speech. Teachers can use the speech and PowerPoint rubrics to grade the assignments.
Great for social studies units that include geography or getting to know your community, state, or region!
Use this project for an oral communication grade for the speech and a technology and/or social studies grade for the Powerpoint. For schools without PowerPoint access, students can also make posters instead of a PowerPoint.
