Eighth grade history students in Mr. Byrd’s class just completed group projects on the five tribes of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy.  The groups presented an original slideshow on each tribe with each group member responsible for one aspect of their tribe’s society.  With the help of school librarian Ms. Hamm, students conducted research, completed their individual slides, and presented to their peers. Group projects help students develop collaborative and teamwork skills while working on public speaking.
