This is a in-depth, creative, and hands-on biographical research project for middle school students. At it's core, it allows students to research powerful leaders (military, political, social) from all across the world and throughout time.
Unlike many of the products on TPT, this project does not waste space or misinform with frills and unnecessary graphics: EVERY PAGE IS DIRECT STUDENT ENGAGEMENT!
This is a fluid project. It can be easily manipulated and utilized in your own unique way to maximize your talent as a teacher and your students skills, however it is heavy on both writing and research.
In my experience, this project takes about 4-5 weeks to complete. I utilize it as an end of the semester case study. The project is made up of 8 essential parts:
Part 1: Extensive World Leader Research (3 parts- Early Life, Adulthood, Legacy)
Part 2: Build a Facebook Page for your Leader Template (Includes Facebook Reflection Questions)
Part 3: Build a Wordle for your Leader (Includes Wordle Reflection Questions)
Part 4: Build a Family Tree for your Leader Template (Includes Family Tree Reflection Question & Personal Family Tree Activity)
Part 5: Construct an Research Paper Outline for your Leader
Part 6: 5 Paragraph Research Paper & Rubric
Part 7: Build a Tri-Fold Presentation (Combines Part 2-6 of project)
Part 8: Classroom Gallery Walk Activity (World Leader Gallery Walk Reflection)
With this small purchase, you will have a detailed and engaging project for years to come!
