In Social Studies students made time capsules to represent their research on the Aztec, Incan, and Mayan Empires.
Rubric was given to students prior to research. After two days of research students had three 45-minute sessions to complete the project.
I set up stations around the room where students would complete each part of the rubric (writing, creating, reading, researching, etc). They put all of their pieces in a shoe box and decorated the outside to represent their people group. It was a blast!
