This is perfect for technology class or for use in a Social Studies or History classroom that wants to incorporate technology with a lesson.

In this lesson, students are provided with a quick tutorial, as well as links to other resources to help them with their project. The tutorial is intended to help students get started with the program and then use the resources within the program to refine their creations. Students create a presentation about a topic of interest related to the Age of Imperialism from a provided list after researching the topic. They use that information along with graphics, pictures and backgrounds from the Internet and also supplied in Microsoft Sway, to create a finished presentation that explains their topic, and add their own opinions and insights to the project. This is an excellent creative project to add to a unit on the Age of Imperialism. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with upper elementary or high school students.
