Make Projects Fun
Group projects can be challenging, but they also offer students a chance to put their individual talents to work. Let’s say your group is assigned a presentation about a U.S. president. Once you have completed your research, putting a creative presentation together can be a lot of fun. If you love music, you might suggest presenting your research in a rap or to the tune of a familiar song. Listen to the Presidents Rap for inspiration, at youtu.be/3uxhzO2xab8.
If someone in your group enjoys theater, you might create an original play to perform in class or even film ahead of time. Those who prefer working behind the scenes could be in charge of running the audiovisual or computing equipment.
Props are great devices to keep the audience interested. Someone in your group who is handy with tools or great at drawing could be in charge of this part of the project. Your school might even have props you can borrow from the music or theater department. Use your imagination, and your next school project should be terrific!
