To Fall or Not to Fall? - Fall of Roman Empire PBL Presentations

D.A.T.A. scholars in Room A-4 did a phenomenal job today giving group oral presentations answering the driving question to our "Fall of Rome" Project-Based Learning unit:  What factors cause a civilization to fall and how can it be prevented?  Performing in collaborative teams, students reported on their top three reasons Rome fell, they encouraged the audience with a community service project idea created by their team, and finally they reflected on how this project could help prevent America from a fall like that in Rome.  Presentations included skits, puppet shows, artistic posters, business cards, brochures, community service flyers, VTS discussion, audience interaction, PowerPoint presentations, GoAnimate cartoon videos, movie-making and newscast apps on their iPhones, and Movie-Maker movies (with music, videos, news casts, narration, skits, commercials, and more!).  What a fun day and a great way to celebrate and share student learning and success!  Enjoy a couple presentations below:
