INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: For our unit project on World War II, you will design either a board game (for up to four players) or a video news report which focuses on one section of the European theater in WWII! This project challenges you to exercise higher-level thinking skills—comprehension, application, analysis, evaluation, and most important, synthesis—to complete complex problem-solving tasks. The overall purpose of this project is to teach others about significant people and events of your chosen European theater ofWorld War II as well as explain why Germany and the Axis Powers lost the War. Once your projects are finshed, we will then play your board game or watch your news report!!

You should include a
an anchor broadcasting the news
a "weather report" depicting important battles/locations on a map

If necessary, you can borrow pieces from other board games).6.sturdy tape and spray glue7.other?
You can find a comprehensive guide to building your board game on my website!
STEP 1: Research and Content Analysis: 1-2 days

You will become experts of the content by conducting online research with your group and on your own! A list of reliable websites is provided below.
You must properly cite your sources in your bibliography using APA format!
Google the OWL Reference Guide for assistance!


Use Lucid Chart, a Google Ap, to Organize your ideas! Write down words, people, places and/or questions that are associated with the topic of your game. .

What should you include?
Generate a list of essential elements and themes of the topic. Who what and where is essential to the telling of the story? Then you can brainstorm about how to include thes in your project.
How will you be evaluated?
You will be graded as much on the PROCESS of this project, as mush as the final product.
Are you using class time effectively?
Are you being a responsible teammate?
Are you being creative and innovative? etc

Daily Check In: Effort and Achievement Charts
Creativity and Innovation "Process" Student Rubric
Collaboration Rubric
How much time do we have?
We will utilize 6-7 class days to research and creating your projects. Then 1-2 days to play your games and watch your news reports!
STEP 2: Brainstorming how to include your events in your game or news report: 1-2 days
Start creating the "blue print" for your project
Diagram your ideas using Lucid Chart
What items will you need for your board game? What kind of game will it be?

What scenes will you need for your news report? How will you depict the information?
Write your script, etc.
