We have started in on our next big project, Ancient Egypt. We have gone over the guidelines for this project as well as examples extensively in class. Students have been previewing topic ideas by watching a video as well as researching and taking notes each day in class.
The link to a pdf copy of what was given to students is below (see ancient egypt). It would be very useful for students to talk about what they are going to complete for each of the components required (paper, speech, visual, group, choice, works cited).
The students are very excited about this topic. I look forward to seeing the product of their studies.
