5th Grade US History Extra Credit

I'm looking for an extra credit project/assignment for U.S. History. We have just started reading about the European explorers and their dealings with each other and the American Indians once they started settling in North America. Any ideas?

Do you wanted related to your topic of study? Or do you want it related to anything?

In terms of unit of study, could they write a persuasive paragraph about if Columbus Day should be a holiday? Could they do a report/presentation on an explorer where they research him more in depth?

If it doesn't matter if it is related to your topic of study, could you do something with current events or the upcoming election? Maybe with parent permission, watch the debates and write a paragraph with what they learned? Maybe research the view points of the different candidates?

I don't have a suggestion for a project per se, but maybe something on one of these sites would trigger an idea for you.

Don't know if anything in here would be helpful or not.

You can always do something with current events, too.
