Using Wixie in Middle School Social Studies
Project ideas, templates, and lessons to support student's as they explore their world and share their learning.
Use these examples of projects created by students along with corresponding lessons and templates to inspire technology project work as your learners explore ancient civilizations.
Creative use of technology can engage students, and help you integrate your iPads, PCs, or Chromebooks into the curriculum. These digital projects were created by students using Wixie.
To help students better understand the perspectives of those living in civilizations during ancient times, have them develop newsletters that recall and retell historic events.
Practice informational writing with a real world twist, by asking students to create promotional materials for a vacation to an ancient civilization.
Students connect with the past as they write a first-person account of events in history.
To help students better understand ancient Greek themes, have them create modern versions of Ancient Greek myths.
Have students create a newscast from an ancient civilization? What would they find newsworthy?
Students can create digital debates to compare two cultures.
In this project, students created a persuasive presentation to raise money to build at temple for the Greek God Helios.
Students create postcards to share what they experience when visiting an ancient civilization.
Use this choice board to put students in charge of how they will demonstrate their learning.

@EllisSoars third graders in @MrsKilburn3rd class partnered up and used @Tech4Learning #Wixie to create Ancient Egypt postcards to share their learning. Printing them on the poster maker made them super sized! pic.twitter.com/8AJ34MAPSE— Heather Meek (@themeekmoose) March 9, 2022

We made our own stories using pictures to represent words, on paper or on Wixie, just like the Ancient Egyptians did! #voiceandchoice #vbamazing #socialstudies @ArrowheadES @bengillikin1 @AlisonReddy1 pic.twitter.com/UgtVTmhcbQ— Jacqueline Frenda (@jacfrenda) March 2, 2018
Students used @nearpod and @discoveryed to gather information about Ancient Rome, then created a travel brochure on @wixie to entice people to take a trip.— Ms. Stormer (@stormers_class) December 21, 2017
