Early Humans Core Project By Dana

20160915_113746.jpg



In the 6th grade core classes, everyone started working on the Early Humans Museum Project for our Social Studies Unit. For the project, we have to create a display for a museum. Each group got one early humans species to study about. There are many things that we can do for the display, such as making a video, creating life-size early human sculptures, replica skeletons, and more creative ways to complete the project.

Every group had their own, creative ideas that are going well so far! Some groups created the life-sized sculptures, drawings of animals, and replicated tools. My group decided to make a video, create a diorama, and make tools for the early humans we are studying about, the Homo Habilis.20160915_133342.jpg


Bonus: On Tuesday, we got to Skype one of the best-selling authors, Chris Grabenstein! Chris Grabenstein wrote the book Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, which was the book for the 6th grade Summer Reading Project. He also wrote many other books, such as Whack A Mole and The Hanging Hill. Getting to communicate with an author was a once in a lifetime experience!
