Carrie Thomas’ class of 5th grade girls was in the library this morning doing initial exploration of the ancient history of the Indus River Valley. Students poked around various sites and databases compiled on a Libguide made by Mr. Boyd, and jotted down interesting facts and questions on sticky notes that were then grouped by topic in various locations around the classroom (sample topics: geography, Buddhism, daily life). At this stage of the project, students are just exploring what’s out there and jotting down notes on the things that are interesting to them. We’ll keep you posted as the project progresses! Similar projects are going on all over the middle school, and we love it!
