Genocide Project: Videos to watch

This project will be a science fair-type project which we will display at Expo.

In order to better understand your topic, you will watch the video below assigned to it.  As you watch:

i) You will need to take notes on things you think are important
ii) You need to write down questions that come up as you watch – things that you need/want to know more about
iii) Also consider what you would like others to know – what is important?  what stories do you need to tell?
