A culminating research project for 6th graders studying ancient Egypt. Students choose a topic they are interested in, and develop a research question based on their topic. Using a variety of media, students research their question and write a short expository report that answers their research question. Finally students create a 3-D "artifact" that represents their topic which is displayed in a class-wide or grade-wide exhibition. Easily adaptable to many topics. Estimated time frame 6-10 days, but length of unit can be adjusted easily. Covers Common Core standards for Reading Informational Text, and writing.
