Every student likes to be recognized on their birthday. But not every birthday occurs during the school year. So, why not give students the opportunity to find out what happened on their special day throughout history? This fun lesson incorporates technology, history, writing, and research. It takes on the "You were there" approach and will give you some real insight on what makes your students tick.
Everything you need including a rubric is included in this 18 slide power point presentation. The notes under several of the slides provide additional information.
BONUS: A storyboard to provide for an alternate or additional lesson has been added. It is intended to help guide young historians to stay on task and provide pertinent information that will be similar to what is provided by classmates.
