Constitution Unit - Slideshow Project

Constitution Unit - Slideshow Project
For this project, you will create ONE slide that will become part of a larger Constitution slideshow presentation. 
TITLE - Place your title at the top of the slide
THE FACTS - What historical facts about your topic should Americans know?
IMAGE - Include at least one image relevant to your topic
SO WHAT? - How does this impact us today? How is this relevant to us today? Why should we care today?
YOUR NAME and PERIOD - Put your name and class period on the slide

Here is an example of what your slide might look like. It's from a later time in history, but you'll notice the various elements are there (title, info, image, name).
TIMELINE and POINT VALUE - You will get time in class on Friday, Monday, and Tuesday to both research and create your presentation. Because it is only ONE slide, you should spend a good amount of time on research, developing an understanding of what your topic is all about. This will be due on Tuesday, November 17. Because this is part of a presentation, there will be a SIGNIFICANT percentage of the grade based in on-time completion. This project is worth 50 points.
