This fun assignment can be used for almost any History topic! Though it probably works best for more modern historical topics. My American History class is using it right now for the early 1800s, but it can easily be edited to fit your needs.
Your class as a whole will be creating a Time Magazine. Each group of partners will be responsible for writing and creating various components of the magazine, such as articles, interviews, photos, and advertisements! Students have opportunities to write, draw, review peer's work, edit and revise, and work cooperatively.
