While studying a unit on Mesopotamia, fifth grade students worked in collaborative groups. Each group wrote a script, which they then filmed, edited, and presented as an i-Movie to the class. They pretended they were Mesopotamian newscasters, writing a news broadcast about their Mesopotamia research. The broadcast included items about canal construction, kings, weather, religion, inventions, gods, priests and farm production. They were required to include all the vocabulary learned in this unit.
