Grade 6 & 7 History – Epic Poem Google Sites

Grade 6 & 7 students wanted a different way to publish the epic poems and associated artwork they had created last semester in History. We decided on Google Sites with each student’s site having the following layout:

Page 1 – Welcome
Page 2 – About me
Page 3 – Poem
Page 4 – Artwork
Page 5 – Video

The video was a reflective exercise letting them look back on their work and answer three questions related to the creative process and how their poem can be linked back to modern society. They planned out a script, rehearsed and then used Photo Booth to record and trim their videos.

The students’ finished sites are all linked below:

And here are a few screenshots of their work:
