This is a research project designed for fourth or fifth graders in Virginia Studies, but it could easily be modified for any other state. Students will use 21st century skills to research their assigned region/state and create an online book with pictures and information. Mixbook (www.mixbook.com) is the selected tool, but any book creation tool could be substituted. Suggested websites for research are included.
FYI - Mixbook accounts are free and students can even use the same account simultaneously.
