Poly’s Sixth-grade History Projects



As part of their ongoing development of research skills, Polytechnic School’s sixth-grade students engage in a six-week project in which they write a research paper and build a construction project on an ancient history subject that interests them. For the hands-on element of the assignment, the students built models, dioramas or displays related to the subject of their paper.

This year’s projects included models of the Ishtar Gate, the sculptures from the civilization of Nok, the Pyramids of Meroë, a Greek trireme, the Ziggurat of Ur, the Royal Standard of Ur, Prehistoric tools and weapons, and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
