This week, students began their Central/South America Project. The Project goals include:
- Students will select one country and research the connections to the five themes of geography, internal and external forces, landforms and the weather and climate of the country they've selected.
- Students will create a Slideshow Presentation to organize and share their information.
- Students will understand how to use citations tools to give credit to the places they found their information.
This week, students were assigned their partners and received the rubric to guide the project. For specific information about the project requirements, please see the rubric. I've included a sample slide show, created by Alan Northouse, that can serve as a mentor presentation to the students:
