Students will use Google Slides or Microsoft PowerPoint to create an 11-slide presentation of the major events during the War of 1812. On each slide, students will include a title, date, image, and a summary. I have guiding questions for each slide, and website links students will use to find the information. The project does not require a textbook or teacher preparation, and it usually takes around two class periods to complete. I have included a rubric for grading. Please message me if you have any questions.
The document can be uploaded to your personal website or Google Drive; however, please make sure it is password protected.
