This is a great project that can be sent home or this can be accomplished in class. This project can be introduced prior to teaching a unit on the Roanoke and the 13 Colonies. It takes about 30 minutes to introduce the project and I give my students about one month to complete the projects. I have my students present their projects to the whole class when they are done.
I let my students choose the grade they want me to begin grading.
I have included a project plan template as well.
