Have your students create their very own marshmallow civilization!!! This is a fun and interesting way for your students to create an ancient civilization. This project has students work collaboratively to produce an in depth presentation that includes a written component, a research component, as well as a hands-on component. For this project, students self-select their own area of responsibility that contributes to overall presentation. By doing this, students are not graded based on their partners’ work, but instead are graded on their own assigned standard, and at the end, the students get to eat their project. This project was a huge success that provides for lasting memories for you and your students.
Includes project description and outline, “job applications,” example city, and rubric.
