Mountain Shadows Middle School
Developmental Humanities Core
6th Grade
Our class is comprised of RSP, Title I, and general education students recommended for extra support in the areas of reading and written language.

In February we completed our unit on Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt.  The class completed an Inquiry Unit on Ancient Egypt.   The projects are written based on Bloom's Taxonomy and Multiple Intelligences.  Students enjoyed building pyramids and making mummies.  They also created games such as those played during ancient times.

At the end of the school year, 6th grade students completed a culminating project on Ancient Greece.  Students worked in cooperative learning groups to create a Greek Magazine.
