Create a "Museum Exhibit" for History Projects

Click the video posted by ScienceNotebooking, who posted a super idea  for history and social studies projects.  This simple craft is created using little more than an old pizza box and plastic wrap.  Underneath the plastic wrap, the box can contain students' 3D creations, pictures or other visual items next to their written research.  This mimics the effect of looking at an exhibit or display in a museum.  You can use it for all kinds of research projects and have students bring their boxes to class, and allow everyone to walk around to view and read the "exhibits" they have all made.  For instance, she says her class behaved as archaeologists presenting artifacts (of their own creation) that were important to various Native American tribes.
