Famous Events in Sports History is a project I created as an alternative to the final exam for a couple of students who did not think they liked liked history, but actually were quite passionate about and knew a great deal about the history of competitive athletics. The project asks students to investigate famous events in sports history as they relate to the specific historical contexts taught in the course.
The project includes step-by-step student instructions, a sample entry, and a rubric.
I also offer this project as part of a bundle with two other history projects. You can find that bundle here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Modern-World-History-Project-Bundle-Fashion-Sports-Technology-2463243.
**Update: I have a colleague that easily modified this project into a History of the Olympics research project**
