Pacific Islands Current Issues Project
For the Pacific Islands Currents Issues benchmark, I have my students work in teams to study one issue in the Pacific and create a fun presentation to share the information to the class. The team has to read and annotate an article, then fill out a graphic organizer the connects causes, effects, and solutions. The final product is the team need to either create a script for a skit, write a rap/poem, or draw out a storyboard/comic strip to present the information. It allows the students to be creative, and engage their peers as their share information.
