I generated this project for my 6th grade classes to be used at the end of our unit on Egypt. It is designed to work just like American Idol. Students work in groups to create a song or rap about Egypt which must contain specific information that is listed in the assignment. Then, students perform their songs (I give extra credit if the entire group dresses up) and a winning group is voted on by myself and other teachers who have judged. I provide a small prize for the winning group. Students absolutely LOVE this project!
