This project I created for my 8th grade Social Studies class to prepare them for their upcoming class trip to Washington DC.
Each 8th grader was assigned a different monument/memorial/museum to become experts on. They were to do research, write a 3 paragraph paper, create a presentation, and present this information to the class. They had 3 weeks to complete this project with minimal in-class work time. They presented the week before they left for their class trip.
My goal for them is to be able to go to Washington DC and know more then just the names of each of the important monuments/memorials/museums.
They really enjoyed doing this project.
