What will the students do?
'The Day I Was Born' project was designed to guide students while they
Links to other online activities are included for enrichment or for those speed demon students who always seem to finish first & then ask 'What do I do now?'
Students will record and organize their data. An online, printable data entry form as well as a project outline is provided for teachers who wish to use them. The final 'draft' could be a handwritten paper, a word processed document, a booklet lovingly given as a Mother's Day or Father's Day gift, a student produced webpage, a software based multi-media slide show, a video--the possiblities are endless.
You may want to direct students to pick any link they would like to start their research and work their way through it as their interest leads them.
After the work is done, you may also wish to join us in Collaborating . In particular you might want your students to become authors of The Day I Was Born Online History Book . If so, each of your students will choose what he or she thinks is the/one most important event which occurred on their birthdate. They will then enter it into the "History Book" where it will appear online. See the link for more details.
