This is perfect for technology class or for use in a Social Studies or History classroom that wants to incorporate technology with a lesson. No download is required to use Canva ( – a free product, making it easy for teachers who are not able to download software on classroom computers to still give their students a choice in learning. Options for using Microsoft PowerPoint or Google slides are also included, if the teacher prefers this option.

In this lesson, students are provided with a quick tutorial, as well as links to other resources to help them with their project. The tutorial is intended to help students get started with the program and then use the resources within the program to refine their creations. Students create a presentation about a topic of interest related to the Progressive Era from a provided list after researching the topic. They use that information along with graphics, pictures and backgrounds from the Internet and also supplied in Prezi, to create a finished presentation that explains their topic, and add their own opinions and insights to the project.

This is an excellent creative project to add to a unit on the Progressive Era.

The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with upper elementary or high school students.

This lesson is great for distance learning/remote learning. You can upload it to your school’s learning management system (Google Classroom, Edmodo, Canvas, etc.) or share with students via Google Drive.
