Scrapbook/Power Point Project
You may create a paper or digital scrapbook or a Power Point presentation for this project. For a scrapbook, all pictures may be printed at the school. The embellishments and sheet protectors are up to you. This project will have five sections with each having a title page or title slide. The sections are leaders, places, battles, concentration camps, and symbols. The student must do 100% of the work. If I find out a parent, sibling, or friend does any of it, you will receive a zero on your report card. You may have help in getting the supplies but not the actual work.

Power Point Tips
All background, font design, and transitions need to be the same. Make sure the letters and the background contrast, for example, navy and white.
You must have title slides for leaders, places, battles, concentration camps, and symbols. The titles need to be as large as you can make them.
You need at least one picture for each slide except the title slides.
If you use bullets, you must use two or more, never just one. Make your sentences short. The less words, the better.
Everything on a slide must be clear and easy to see and read. Make sure you do not use blurry pictures.
You may insert videos 2 minutes or less in your Power Point.
When writing about the places that are battle sites also, stick with information about the place and not the actual battle. For example, the population at the time, description of the land and the people. How far away is it from America? What continent?
When writing about battles, include everything about the battle. You will want to include statistics. Who were the generals or leaders? Casualties? Importance of winning the battle? Tactics?
Leaders---interesting, unusual facts
Concentration camps—country, type, statistics, description of camp, clear pictures
Symbols---clear picture, meaning, who used it, history of the symbol
The scrapbooks may contain parts of handouts that I give you in class, such as pictures.
ALL INFORMATION MUST BE PARAPHRASED-------IN YOUR OWN WORDS!!!!!
