To research and type a report on a topic of your choice from the list provided
Each student will create a 3-D model of a medieval castle or cathedral. This model can be constructed using a variety of materials such as cardboard, foam board, ice cream cones, cake, sticks, plastic cups, recycled materials, etc. Pre- made kits and Legos are not acceptable nor may it be computer generated. The castle/cathedral should be placed on a baseboard of some type for easy transfer. It should not be larger than half a poster board (approximately 10” x 15”). Your name must be on the baseboard.
A two page typed report must accompany the model. The complete report must include a title page and works cited page of at least four references (only one of which may be an encyclopedia and only two Internet sites). Twenty-five notecards based on notes taken from sources will be required (format to be given in class).
The title page includes the title, your name, the class, and the date it is due. Do not place the report in any type of folder/covering. Just staple it together in the upper left-hand corner.
The report must have an introductory and a concluding paragraph. Spelling, grammar, and capitalization rules must be followed. Double- space the report. Refer to the rubric for further details.
Grading: The report will be worth 100 pts. in social studies and 100 pts. in grammar. Remember to use MLA format.
The grade for the model will count as a grade for both social studies (50pts.) and art.
