Student model: North Carolina state capitol building

Student work provided by Anne Hawkins, Melodie Hunsberger, and Mary-Elizabeth Robinson.

A Tiered Assignment
As a culminating assignment for their study of North Carolina, a fourth-grade class at Baileywick Elementary was given a project designed to combine map skills, writing skills, thinking skills, and research skills, and to review what the students had learned about the state. Each of the three fourth grade classes was assigned one of North Carolina's regions — the mountains, Piedmont, or coast. 
This image shows a student's model of the state capitol building in Raleigh.
