Guide to Making Your Museum Exhibit

In the first project of the year, you collected oral histories to share what life is like in certain places in 2018. In this second project, you’ll do the work of historians who study the far distant past and then act as museum curators to visually present your findings.

 

Your final project components will include the following

  • Your individual historical notes and analysis on a secondary source, with information from all team members

  • Your individual historical notes and analysis about primary sources, with information from all team members

  • A museum exhibit created by your team, with five documents and five captions

Optional add-ons:

  • Create original frames for the document

  • Create an introductory paragraph for the exhibit

  • Create a museum guide for visitors
