- Inform students that they will be doing a research project where they will create a slide show presentation on the Iroquois.
- First they will create/log in to Symbaloo. Inform students that the Symbaloo that they will create will be passed on to a different group which will be used for the report.
- Next they will gather videos and websites with information on the Iroquois. All of the links should be presented in an easy to follow format such as the model I will provide.
3 Guided Practice

- Teacher will circulate assisting students with any technical issues in creating their guide.
- At the end students will email the link to the group that has been assigned to swap with them.
