Exploration Research Assignment

The students have been immersed in the world of North American exploration during reading so this frees up our social studies time to create projects.  I have asked the students t become experts over the next two week in something under the theme of "Exploration."  They will therefore have 5 sessions in class to research whichever topic they choose and then create a presentation showing off all of their knowledge.  Presentations will be December 9th.

Students may choose to pick a topic that falls under what we have discussed in school (North American exploration in the 1400 and 1500s) or they may go completely outside of this time, think space exploration, exploration of Africa etc.  This is their chance to become experts on something they are curious abut.  They will get time in school to work but may choose to work on it outside of school as well.
