State history project

Patty Townsend

I am working on an idea for an inquiry project into the event or time period that had the most impact on our state. State history has been my students' least favorite topic for two years running. I need ideas for a big question to guide my planning. I want them to choose, investigate it, defend it, and create either a book or media project for the elementary students. Any help would be great!

Best,
