6th Grade PBL
The Egypt Experience
Death masks and chalk drawings of Egyptian deities created in 6th grade art classes.

The Institute for Ancient Egypt is planning to take its world-famous exhibit of ancient Egyptian artifacts on tour in the United States. Rather than visiting museums, the Institute is planning to go to schools across the United States. They have selected your school as their first stop and have requested that your class help develop a plan to be used as a model to present their exhibit in an exciting and educational way.

This project provides students with the opportunity to master historical content, to learn how to conduct research, and to build upon their language and critical thinking skills as they assist the "Institute" in planning, organizing, advertising, and presenting its exhibit. Students become "authorities" on ancient Egyptian history and culture as the engage in the activities throughout the project.

6th graders read the Newbery Honor Book, "The Egypt Game"
