This project has students choosing an aspect of World War II that they are interested in learning more about. They then come up with guiding research questions and a plan for creating a museum exhibit. Their exhibit must have a written component as well as an artifact. There are options for students to choose how they are going to present their work. This is best completed either as a major component of a World War II unit or part of a world history course. This product can be adapted for use in the USA.
There is a one mark rubric that is based on "The Six Big Historical Thinking Concepts" of Peter Seixas and Tom Morton. This allows for students to continually work at improving certain aspects of their project.
There is also a self assessment portion that goes along with the BC curricular competencies. This can be used as a self-assessment piece for students to reflect on the different aspects of learning involved in their project.
