many discoveries or inventions were found by accident and
would probably have been discarded if someone had not
taken the time to THINK about what they saw or what
happened. You will choose from the list of “accidental”
inventions or discoveries (see #1 below), answer 3 questions
about your choice (see #2), then choose a format (see #3 for

Concept web Poster Foldable book
PowerPoint Presentation
Graphic organizer
• Presentation strategy of choice (with teacher approval)
-The novel deals with the issue of the collective versus the
individual. Research one country that values the collective and
one that values the individual.
-Prepare for a 3-5 minute speech based on the details of your
research that compares and contrasts these two countries and
provide a visual to represent each country.
-Include a typed hard copy of the speech in addition to the
presentation piece. To complement the oral presentation, you
must include some form of visual (power-point, song, video,
poster, etc)
Social Studies
Create a city map, a flag, National Anthem and a
Bill of Rights (at least 10 rights) from the “old”
setting in Anthem. When writing the anthem, it
should be set to a tune. You will be expected to
creatively present the anthem in class
(examples: singing, rapping, reciting, spoken
word.) A Display board is to be used to
showcase the City map, Flag, Bill of Rights and
the Anthem.
