1. You will be assigned to teams of 5 or 6.
2. Your team voyage will be randomly selected from a hat. The spectacular journeys include:
|Sub-Saharan Africa||Southeastern/East Asia|
|Eastern Europe||Southern/Western Asia|
|South America||Southern Europe|
3. As a team, you may determine how to conduct your project, and you may split up work loads amongst the individuals in your group. However, the following are roles that must be incorporated in your voyage and discussed in both your presentation and research paper. Most of these roles will require more than one student's attention. The Travel Agent, for example, will need to be aware of what museum the Art Critic plans to attend because it may cost significant money to travel there. Do not simply split up these roles and assume that individuals will properly cover all aspects of the task. If you do this, you may find your presentation or research paper repeating itself or missing large chunks of the task completely. I highly suggest that all members of the group become familiar with each role and assist in some way. And the roles are:
In addition to these roles, your group will need to determine how to create and bestow your presentation to the rest of the class and how to prepare and complete your research paper. (i.e. typing, speaking, cutting, gluing, mastering PowerPoint, gathering opinions or picking up guest speaker Hans from the airport) To help evaluate if everyone is doing their share, each team member should submit a performance report.
4. Your team will organize your voyage information in a thoughtfully laid-out research paper that completely covers all six aspects of the task. Please incorporate one picture that represents your voyage on the cover page or at the end of your report. In addition to being thoughtfully laid out and simply stapled together at the top left corner, your paper MUST BE WORD PROCESSED.
5. Your voyage will be shared with the class in a colorful 20 minute presentation. Be creative: put on a play, make a video, use technology, bring in food to share from your destinations, invite a guest speaker. DO NOT simply present your research paper. Actually, do not even attempt to present everything that you have to include in your research paper - you will not have time and that would be VERY boring. Share the highlights, but, remember, this is a family show so, please submit your presentation idea for approval one week before your group is scheduled to present. Presentation Approval Form
