For your state research project, choose one of the following ways to present your state. To ensure that you receive all
50 points for your research, be sure to include the following things in your presentation or report:

— State bird (2 pts.)
— 3 current events in your state (5 pts. each)
— any other interesting and valuable information (10 pts.)
If you choose to write a report, it must be at least 500 words typed. To present your report, you will read it to the class and
answer any logical questions they may have.
If you choose to draw a poster, it must be neat and colorful. It should include both pictures and words. You must turn in 1
paragraph explaining different things on your poster. To present your poster, you will NOT read the paragraph, you will
present the poster to the rest of the class.
Your song/rap should have NO obscene language. If you need background music, you may email me the music to play for the
class. The words to the song/rap should be typed in order to read it. You must turn in 1 paragraph explaining your song/rap.
To present, you will perform the song or rap to the rest of the class.
Your PowerPoint presentation must be saved on a disk and the disk brought to school the day of your presentation. It should
include pictures and words and must have a minimum of 5 slides. You must turn in 1 paragraph explaining each slide. You will
present the PowerPoint using the class computer and explain each slide. If you would like to do a PowerPoint, but do now
know how, you may make an appointment after school and I will explain it to you. However, you must have someone who is
able to pick you up at 4:00pm.
If you have another idea for presenting your state, you must see me for approval.
The entire project is worth 100 points.

Correct grammar, punctuation, neatness, etc. will also be valuable to your grade at approximately 3 points each.
