*This is a hands on activity that may require additional assistance by an adult.* I firmly believe that we learn more by DOING! In this multi-day class the students will be introduced to the Nile River. The Nile River was a vital resource for the ancient Egyptians which granted them the opportunity to grow crops in the dry arid desert. In week one I will be doing most of the talking while the students are making their rivers. In week two the students will have the opportunity to present...
Students will: • improve their knowledge of the Nile River and ancient Egypt • make their own Nile River that actually floods and produces growth • have a better understanding of the plant growth cycle • practice observation by documenting and tracking data • practice following step by step instructions to complete a complex project with little assistance • improve public speaking by presenting their river and documentation to the class • practice responsibility and initiative taking by tending to their rivers and completing their observation journals
Students will be responsible for flooding (watering) their Nile river along with tracking and documenting any growth that occurs between our first class and our next. Students will be able choose the format they are most comfortable with for recording growth. (text or drawing)
For our Nile building project, students will need to obtain the following items: • 1 foil pan • aluminum foil • pebbles and small rocks of various sizes (approx 1-2 cups) or more depending on availability or preference • soil (garden soil preferably) • grass seeds • water • a cup • a spot that receives plenty of light • decorations (plastic crocodiles, hippos, camels, palm trees, etc...whatever you want to add to your river is up to you!)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
