In February, sixth grade students studied the ancient Greek civilization. Students were divided into groups of four and each group given a random event or person from the time period to research.
Students had to explain the person or event, without using posters or PowerPoint presentations. They were encouraged to think outside of the box and present what they had learned in an unexpected way like a puppet show, skit, board game, or a picture book. Additionally, each group had to be able to do a five minute presentation in front of the class on their project.
One group did a skit on Pandora's box, another group did a puppet show, and one group did a board game with trivia questions.
