6th graders in Ancient History have been studying Ancient China in a very creative way.
Students focused on 4 inventions (the compass, movable type, kite, balloon rocket) of the Ancient Chinese and chose 1 to demonstrate to the class. They also had to problem solve a way to take their invention to the "next level." Authenticity and having a working model were also requirements. At the end of class students with kites gathered outside to fly their colorful creations. They did a great job!
