This activity is a nice summative interactive assignment to gauge students understanding on the Mexican-American and allows students to display their knowledge in a fun and creative way! Students will be reporting on the storyline of the Mexican-American war and how it changed American history forever.
Students have the option of:
1. Creating a google drawing, hand drawing on the topic
2. Create a presentation
3. Create a comic.
The outline and instructions are all embedded in this assignment.
Students can pull pictures from the internet to illustrate what happened!
I used this with my 7th graders, but it can also work for high school as well. To assist my students, I gave them a ducksters webquest on the war the previous day. This is another one of my products on my page. My students love using technology and always seem more engaged
