Third graders at Hillel Day School learned about the city of Detroit in the classroom, on a field trip, and through individual research. Each student researched a specific attraction in the city, and used what he or she learned to create a PowerPoint slide. The slides have been combined to teach others about the importance and historical significance of these places. We hope you enjoy and learn from our final product, whether you have visited or not!

This project helped students to develop skills in research, effective note taking, using technology to communicate information, and concepts of design.
