This unit is a wonderful way to get students to realize the scope of history during their life time. This is a multi-media project that requires students to research the history that was going on in the world, the US, their state, and their personal lives during the years of their life. It's an interesting, fun way to end a school year by teaching modern historical events and placing the students in the middle of it. This project gives students choices so that every student is not researching the same events. It can be an individual or group project. A grading rubric is included.
