There are fourteen projects available to choose and each of the projects have different point value. Student's can choose any of the projects with the goal of acquiring 100 points. If the total points exceed's 100, student's will not receive extra credit.
An important component to this project is research. Research means acquiring information and details, which go beyond the basic information we discussed in class. An example: We know that the Nile River is the longest in the world. This is good information to record, however knowledge should go beyond the basic information we learned about in class.
The point options for the assignment range from 10, 20, 50, and 80 points. The project's higher point values reflect a long time to complete. Rubrics are attached to each assignment. It is highly recommended that prior to starting the project, student's read and be familiar with how the project will be graded.
It is the intent of the project is to be as creative with material and items you choose. Student's should not have to spend any money, or very little if necessary. An example: If you require an Egyptian character for a diorama, do not go and buy one. Rather, use a toy figure and decorate him with a scrap cloth to create an "Egyptian" figure.
Now that you have read this overview, you may begin choosing your projects.
