Our students are researching and creating biographies and presentations on an individual who influenced a change in history. This project is to wrap up our first IB unit, Sharing the Planet. Our central idea for this unit is: Roles, individuals, and events influence change. Ask your student who they selected for the project and why they made that choice. Also ask them how their individual made a change in history.
Students will work on all components of this project in class. Students may want to bring items from home to use as a costume or prop for their change influencer. However, students are not required to purchase anything special for this project. Students will present their projects on Thursday, September 20th. Parents are invited to drop in from 8:30 – 9:00 to interact with our presentations.
