In this semester, we have studied many changes and new achievements in the world. Your task is to create an essay and short video highlighting an event from the last 150 years that you think is a most significant event. You will notice that this "a" most significant, not "the" most significant as there have been many important events that have occurred. Some things you might consider are –
An Invention or Discovery
A Creative Effort
An Event (this can be a one-time event or something that happened over time)
A Beginning or Ending
Your Significant Project must be unique in your class section, meaning you may not do the same topic as anyone else in your class.
