Objective of Collaboration
HistoryQuest8: Revolutionary War FREE This project is designed for 8th grade students studying US History. Through video conference technology, students are able to meet other students while learning about United States history. Prior to the video conference each classroom will create a presentation with clues about a mystery person, event, invention, issue/problem or section from a document. The other classrooms, using maps, the Internet, textbooks, and other resources, will try to discover the history mystery presented by each participating classroom. We’re doing a 45 minute session with this agenda; shortened for middle school schedules: 1 min: Intro & Directions by Janine 20 min: 4 classes do 5 min presentations 15 min: Research and solve (students can use computers from the start) 5 min. Each classroom presents their guesses to the clues. 5 min. Correct history mysteries revealed by each classroom.
