History of Europe Unit - Henry County School District

HISTORY OF EUROPE UNIT Examples of some of the Extension Projects BIOGRAPHY BOTTLES The best projects use materials found around the house, not store bought items: old t-shirts for clothes, toilet paper tubes for legs, moms old jewelry. Please make sure that you include 15 or more facts about your person. Most people type the

details of the persons life up and display it at the base of the bottle. It should read like a story, not a list of facts. POEMS FOR TWO VOICES The poem is written from two different perspectives. On the left side is one persons words, the right side has the opposing viewpoint. Sometimes they say their line together, often they speak alone.

POEMS FOR TWO VOICES Pick two people that are on opposite sides of an issue. While composing your poem, make sure you include 15 or more facts. Present your poems in a visually appealing way (include some pictures). Make sure you have a title and the authors name at the top. Some ideas: American teen vs. Soviet teen during Cold War European explorer vs Native American during Age of Exploration Hilter vs the Jews (or any of the other people he persecuted). Europe vs Africa personification of continents during Scramble for Africa

DIARY OF AN EXPLORER The diary should be combination of your researched facts (15 or more) and your fictional experience. EXPLORERS MAP The map should include text and pictures describing the event that occurred at that location. Make sure you have 15 or more facts about the explorers adventure. While visually

appealing and an accurate account of PdLs voyage, this graphic would lose pts because there are no facts or visuals of specific events. Historical Portraits The portrait on the right is detailed and colored correctly. It would lose major pts because there are no facts. The gentleman on the right

has details that I like, BUT the words/phrases need to be in sentence format and he needs to be colored. Make sure your details are researched facts 15 detailed facts in all. Great facts, more than 15 in fact, in this example, but the project would lose major pts because it is not colored and the words are not in

complete sentences. Do NOT do an animal this graphic is for demonstration only. ANALYZE POLITICAL CARTOONS We will be analyzing some political cartoons in class. Please follow the established guidelines when you analyze yours. Show the teacher your 6 cartoons BEFORE you start analyzing them to

make sure they are not ones we will be doing in class. You may want to consider doing this project in a ppt. Columbus landed in the Bahamas, which at the time of his arrival was home to X number of people of the Tainos tribe. PRIMARY DOCUMENT OR ITEM Primary documents are first hand accounts - a journal, diary, or letter

written by someone who was there, or a photo taken at the event. He/she was there to experience the event. A picture drawn after reading about an event is called a secondary source or document. You can pick a topic such as Cold War spy devices and research the items as well. A Lipstick Pistol made

by the KGB (Soviet Secret Police) in 1965. Its nicknamed the Kiss of Death. HISTORICAL FICTION AND BIOGRAPHY BOOKS Comparing a book, whether historical fiction or a (auto)biography, to the real event is an option for your project as well. Please show me your book before you start reading. There should be 15 points

of comparison between the book and real, fact based history. Ex: Peter Sis talks about Prague Spring in The Wall. You would compare his description with the real event. POP UP BOOK Using the 15 facts that youve collected during your research, you can create a 3 or four page pop-up

book. It must have a cover. *If you show me your rough drafts, I will be happy to give you cardstock for your book. ABC BOOK I love the set up of these letters, but each page needs a visual of some sort a picture, map, or diagram. Make sure to follow the same set up on all of your pages. This would be a good project to do with 3 other people. First, your group would decide on a topic: WWI, the Cold War, the Age of

Exploration. Then you would determine how the pages are going to be set up and lastly, each persons area of responsibility. I would divide the work up like this: A F and cover G L and front page M S binding the pages together T - Z less work, since hardest letters Each persons pages must have a total of 15 researched facts which means the book has at least 60 facts. FINAL REMINDERS 1. No matter what project you pick to extend your learning, please make sure you include 15 facts that you have written. 2. Do not copy pages, paragraphs, sentences, or phrases from a book or

online resource. That is stealing that authors work, which is called plagiarism. If you dont know the meaning of a word, look it up and learn its definition or dont use the word in your project. 3. When you think you are done, have someone grade your creation using the project rubric. Tell the person that is looking at your project that you want them to look out for mistakes. Most people will not point out your flaws because they are being polite. If they give you a bad grade, FIX IT!
