“The American History Film Project (AHFP) challenges students in grades K-12 to create a 3-10 minute film about their hometown history or a local event or person. This is a project-based learning initiative which culminates each year in a showcase of student work. The Rhode Island Historical Society has created this Padlet (digital bulletin board) with all of the materials–including an activity booklet–you and your students will need to participate in this project!
You can gain access to the Padlet and get started by completing this request form. Though the American History Film Project caters to all grade levels, the activities created by the Rhode Island Historical Society for this project are best for students in grades 6-12.”
