Product Description
Students will use the template provided to create a Twitter page for a particular historical figure. This activity encourages students to demonstrate their knowledge in a creative way. It also allows students to use higher-level thinking skills to provide historical information within a medium that is relevant and familiar. At $0.11 per activity, this packet of assignments, that covers content from the colonies to Reagan, is a great deal!

Students will be given a paper or digital template and an assignment. For each historical figure, students must provide:
• Basic biographical information
• A unique, creative username
• Up to 6 historically relevant tweets
• Up to 3 suggestions as to who they should follow on Twitter (ties to other figures of the time period)
• Up to 7 trends (historical relevance)
• A small profile picture

This assignment can be modified from an assignment for a single student to one involving pairs or groups and can be assigned as classwork or homework.
