Research on Explorers, Colonists and First Americans

Students have completed their research and presentations on some early historical groups of people. Students worked individually or with a partner to communicate their information to their peers. In addition to sharing what they have learned, students learned how to "take notes" while hearing a presentation.

We were challenged to listen and summarize important ideas into succinct notes. Our inclination is to record every single word that is shared by the presenter. We know that this important skill takes time and practice to learn!  

View a few of our presentations!
