Welcome to Explore a Topic: Innovators!

In these lessons you will learn by exploring on your own, then by teaching your classmates and even your teacher!

This Explore, Create, Communicate activity is about diverse Innovators who invent new products or introduce new ideas.

You can work on this activity on your own or with a group.

First, you will pick a topic.

Choose one from the website, or develop your own.

Next, get ready to explore!

You will make an exploration document in Google Docs.

This is where you will keep track of sources and information.

To keep your exploration focused, you will use one of the research questions provided for you, or write your own.

If you’re working in a group, share the document with all of your group members.

Next, you will explore the topic by searching the internet.

Suggested sources are listed in the document, but you will also find your own.

Then, you will create a project to communicate the information you found.

It is up to you to choose the G Suite application that best suits your topic.

For example, you could write an article in Google Docs; create a presentation in Google Slides; or build a website in Google Sites.

Finally, present your project to your class and your teacher, communicating what is important and interesting about it.
