As part of our unit on Louis Lowry ’ s Number the Stars we completed a research project related to World War II . We were allowed to choose a topic related to World War II and teach our classmates about this topic so that they would understand the context of the novel better . We completed our research by taking hand-written notes while we used the computer laboratory to access the internet . After we had compiled our notes we planned the organization of our presentation using GoogleSlides . Finally we finished our good copies , prepared our notes and presented what we learned to our freinds and classmates .
