World War I Project

 

Students will use Google Slides to research about new and innovative technologies used during WW 1.  Students may choose technologies used over air, land, or sea .

 

The research should include how the new technology helped the U.S. win the war.  The google slides should show photos of the technology, who invented the technology, the countries or battles that the technology was used.  The battles that occurred during use of the technology should be summarized or explained briefly.

 

The project should include any important persons in history who lead troops in using the technology.  

 

The pictures of the technology should help tell the story.  

 

There should be a min. Of 6 slides which include the following:

 

A title slide with name, date, and title of your report

 

Each slide must contain a photo or illustration

 

The typeface on each slide should be large enough for students to read when sharing with the class

 

Do not paste a photograph and then place text over the photo.  This is not very appealing.  

You should not copy and paste any written text.  You should take notes and summarize on your own.  

 

Each slide should have a caption or heading,  Using a theme throughout the slide presentation creates a pleasing project.

 

You will have Monday and Tuesday to research in class for your project.  The project will not be due until after midterm progress reports.  You will have another two class periods in the next two weeks to work on the project in class.  The other work will need to be completed outside of class.

 

The due date will be announced in a couple of weeks.
