How did your person change the world?
Your lesson needs to include the following:
A brief biography of the person. The basics will do just fine. When did they live? What were the circumstances of their life? What made them well known? When and where did the die?
Then you need to tell us about their contribution to world history. Tell us how they shaped the world - or at least their part of it. What contributions did they make? How did they interact with those around them? Where did they devote their time and energy? Be specific here. Explain the details of these answers to us, don't just gloss over the surface.
How you deliver your lesson is entirely up to you. You may use a slide show - as most do, or you may do a video, a dramatic reading, a play, a video, a demonstration - within reason, an impression - whatever you like. The point is that you answer the essential questions in a way we can understand.

Here is an excellent link about general writing practices. Yes, it's a college site, but I found it very user-friendly and readable.
