As promised, here are the examples of the project I’ve dubbed “Interactive Egypt.” If you didn’t read my post earlier in the week about the project you can catch up here. Otherwise this was a project designed to have the students create a usable interactive presentation that could be put on display at a museum, like the kind of digital displays that are increasing common in most major museums. While I don’t have any plans to share this first round with anyone outside of the school, I thought it might be fun to find a local children’s museum (we have one in the neighboring town) and see if it would be possible to put the students’ work on display at the museum for a special exhibit.
These are just a few examples from varying levels of abilities to give you a good picture of what they produced. I didn’t think it would be fair to just show you the high examples, and rest assured that some of the more “less than complete” projects received marks that were appropriate for the state of their presentation. I also have a rubric that I used, which I think needs retooling to include grammar and sentence structure for the next presentation.
