History Mid-Year Examination

Dear kiddies,

Here the guide for your history test.

You are going to work on a topic, which we have not seen in class, and you will prepare a presentation using google presentations.

Pay attention to my questions and the requirements for the test. Of course, you don´t need to copy questions in your presentations, just deal with the topics.

If you have questions, send an email to me.
