Mesopotamia Ancient Civilizations Project

on October 5, 2015

Every quarter our 6th graders work very hard on a Project based learning assignment.  They are given the Social Studies Topic and then get to pick which sub-topic they would like to research for. First Quarter in Social Studies involved Ancient Mesopotamia and the times during the 4th Dynasty! Students had a chance to research: agriculture and farming, religion, architecture and inventions, culture, or Military.  They had over a month to research, take notes, organize their notes, write a rough draft, edit their paper, write or type a final draft, and create the visual!

The visuals were very unique in our class. I let students choose what type of visuals they wanted to present to the class on Presentation Day (September 30th).  Students made some awesome poster boards, built pyramids, made a power point, or a Powtoon video!

Here are just some of the posters!
