It's your birthday - you need to organise a party. Use your search skills to find the perfect venue. Then make a party invitation in Google Slides (the one above is an example).

The party will have a theme.

The theme will be "On this Day in History". Be sure to include at least 1 thing on the invitation that happened on your birth day, before  you were born and after 1950. It should be something guests can dress up as, or bring a "prop" connected to that event.

What is the perfect venue?

Nowhere that you have been before. (Be truthful).

No more than 20 miles from school (put the mileage on your invitation)

Suitable for kids of your age.
