Project #13

The Renaissance Projects

In our lesson plan for 9th grade World History students, we decided to let them get a feel of the Renaissance. This project is in two parts. In the first part of the project, students will be divided into groups of four and assigned a Renaissance artist. They will create a slideshow to tell about the artists life, with a ten slide minimum. In the second part of this project, we like to call it "The Michaelangelo Project". Students will get to tape paper under a desk or table, and lay on mats to get a feel of what it was like for Michaelangelo to paint the Sistine Chapel. They will get to recreate one of his works of art in the Sistine Chapel. Students will not be graded on the aesthetic properties, but on their participation and effort. I feel like this project is very hands on, and will be so fun and interesting for students - I wish my teachers in the past had done something this creative!
