My gifted project timeline: The R.M.S Titanic scavenger hunt


Starting of the project

10/15/2012 - 11/16/2012

I will pick out what I want my project to be. I have picked out what I want it to be, so I must assign a date for the Titanic scavenger hunt to take place. I will use a calendar, a planner, and my teachers schedule to help me plan.

I will create a list of clues

10/16/2012 - 10/17/2012

I will start to brainstorm clue ideas. I will do this by researching on the Titanic and finding good information to use, that is pretty basic. Then I will write the clues down, and where I want them to lead.

I will complete my list of clues

10/17/2012 - 10/18/2012

I will complete writing my clues and proof read to make sure there aren't any errors. I will find a neat font, and I will find a good color by using the tools on Google Docs.

I will gather together a list of people I need to get permission from

10/18/2012 - 10/19/2012

Since I am using a scavenger hunt, I need to get permisssion from teachers. I will gather a list of everyone I need to contact to make sure the locations my clues are leading are available to use. I will make this list on Google Documents.

I will create rules and guidelines I want people to follow.

10/19/2012 - 10/20/2012

I will create a list of every rule I want to have followed. I will type this list in a Google Document under my gifted folder< Current gifted projects tabs.

Put everything together

10/22/2012 - 10/23/2012

I will put all of this information together on a presentation power point. I will make different slides for rules, and for the first clue, by typing in information I have learned used and created.
(Using microsoft office power point)

Create a list of possible prizes

10/23/2012 - 10/24/2012

I will create a list of possible cheap prizes that I may be able to buy. This will help me to see what the winners will get when they complete my scavenger hunt first.

I will proof read my clues and make the locations specific.

10/24/2012 - 10/25/2012

I will proof read, and detail where the clues will lead. For example, I have a clue to the library. I want the clue to be in a Titanic book. So I will specify which book and why I chose it.

Brainstorm ways to make a puzzle

10/26/2012 - 10/27/2012

I will brainstorm how I want each clue to make a puzzle. I will then make the clues the right font and size to match the puzzle pieces I want.

Research more information

10/29/2012 - 10/30/2012

I will research more information about the Titanic and summarize the most important information I find, in a Google Document.

Research information

10/30/2012 - 10/31/2012

I will continue to research information and put into a document.

Research MORE information

10/31/2012 - 11/01/2012

I will continue to research information and put it into a document.

Research more

11/01/2012 - 11/02/2012

Research more, and put the main keys into a google document

Create a blog

11/02/2012 - 11/03/2012

I will use to make a new blog. I will pick themes, and make a blog entry and fix side bars, and make the blog look nice. This will help get information about the Titanic out to students so they know the information at the scavenger hunt. (Kind of like the scavenger hunt will be a test)

Blog posts

11/05/2012 - 12/16/2012

Continue making blog posts with the information I have learned about the R.M.S Titanic.

Pick groupings

11/05/2012 - 11/07/2012

Pick what students will work together, get it approved by a teacher

Get permission

11/28/2012 - 11/30/2012

I will start to ask permission from teachers to use their classrooms, and other spaces in the building.

Finishing touches

12/15/2012 - 12/16/2012

Put together finishing touches
