This year in order to help students understand the importance of history, I assigned a project called The History of Things. Students chose a topic of interest and began to research. What a great experience this has been, students have learned so much about their chosen topic, students have learned from each other and I have learned from my students. Did you ever wonder how the Eiffel Tower became the center piece of Paris, or perhaps you would like to know how the iconic Disney World got its start, or is all that glitters and shines like diamonds more your style? Do you love those crispy snacks, potato chips, do you where glasses, are you a fashionista who loves the latest Converse or an athlete who loves sports and sports wear? I’ve posted a few of these projects below, all students have posted their final projects on their blogs, be sure to check them out!
