Inventions of World War I & World War II - Research and Presentation in Canva

Inventions of World War I & World War II - Research and Presentation in Canva

This unit connects learning with technology to Social Studies. This is perfect for technology class or for use in a Social Studies or History classroom that wants to incorporate technology with a lesson. No download is required to use Canva (www.canva.com ) - a free product), making it easy for teachers who are not able to download software on classroom computers to still give their students a choice in learning. 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 some of the things that were invented because of World War I or World War II after researching them. They use that information along with graphics, pictures and background (supplied in Canva) to create a finished presentation that explains the history of the inventions and adds their own opinions and insights to it. This is an excellent creative project to add to a unit on World War I or World War II. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with upper elementary or high school students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher & Student Notes and Resources • Student Project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Getting Started Tutorial for Canva
