We did more Internet research and used a greater variety of book research
than was indicated in the original. We also visited the Metropolitan
Museum rather than take a virtual tour.
Be introduced to Internet research
To become familiar with a time and culture very different
from our own
Technology played a huge role!!! Most of our research was done on the
internet. The class developed their own list of interesting sites. All
children learned how to Google for information.
I assessed my students by evaluating their written work and the understanding
they exhibited while creating a part of the project.
Tips for Teachers
My project became more historical rather than art based, though there
was certainly a large art component. I had spent quiote a
bit of time introducing computer skills to my second graders before
we began. I would suggest the same to make the project enjoyable.
My kids really loved discovering floor plans of tombs and pyramids.
And of course, anything about mummies was great!
