Students will create a Mini Book about the causes, important battles, and effects of the War of 1812. I have included 20 guiding questions and hyperlinks to kid-friendly websites they will use to find the information. On each page, students will include a title, visual, and a summary of the event. The Mini Book does not require any teacher preparation other than providing students with an 11' X 17' sheet of paper. I have included a rubric. I'm confident your students will love this engaging project! Please message me if you have any questions.
*I have included both a PDF and Word Doc. Feel free to tweak the assignment to fit your classroom.
*Student instructions on how to create a mini book are included.
*The project will take 1-2 class periods depending on grade level.
