Do some research on your chosen topic. Find out the significant
  • dates,
  • people,
  • places,
  • and events.

Arrange them chronologically.

Then find photos to accompany them. There are links provided below. 

Use only the pictures that are found on the website.  You will need to cite them. Information on how to do that is provided here under the heading of Non-Commercial Reproduction.

  1. Chinese Head Tax
  2. Women declared persons. Women's Suffrage (Be careful what you pick with this one. Not all the pictures are relevant.)
  3. Japanese Internment
  4. Igor Gouzenko, Joseph McCarthy
When you have researched your event and found great pictures to accompany it, you are going to compile them into a small video using the website

You'll need to register at Powtoon. I'd suggest you use your Wingsmail account for that.

When you're in, you should create a video with at least
  • 10 slides
  • 1 picture per slide
  • and 20 words per slide.
Remember that with the magic of Powtoon, your words, or pictures, don't all have to be on the screen at the same time. They come in and leave the screen as you like.
