This handout is geared towards Social Studies and provides a list of six research based projects that students can choose from to create a culminating final project, working as individuals, pairs, or groups.  We always let students decide how they wanted to approach this task letting them choose if they wished to work in a group or individually.

The different project ideas here allow for the various learning styles your students have to be utilized. The projects themselves provide good review materials for the entire class.

  • Subject Areas: History, Social Sciences
  • Materials Required: Printed handouts, other materials may be provided by the students themselves.
  • Time Needed: At least two full class periods, plus homework, or more in-class work days as desired.
