The Upper Unit students are examining who built the pyramids in Egypt and putting all the skills they have learned this year to the test. They are looking through several documents, learning from primary sources, evaluating the evidence, corroborating the information, and coming to a conclusion supported by the facts they find.
As this is a Humanities project, the students will first be working in Social Studies to make sure the content and factual information are correct. Then they will be working on their paragraphs in Language Arts to correct the style and punctuation.
These critical thinking and writing skills will help the students decipher information from various sources and convey what they have learned in clear, accurate language.
