Making Dioramas

Diorama of old civilization with people in a cave around a fire, and animals outside of the cave. Diorama of an Egyptian setting with a pyramid in the center and people and trees outside of the pyramid. After reading the book “Wonderstruck”, 3rd-8th grade students, in the School for the Deaf, completed a diorama project that compared information presented through text and information presented visually.  The students chose topics that they were interested in or had previously learned about in their science and social studies classes.  Then they created a diorama with an accompanying written report.  The dioramas pictured here are about early humans and ancient Egyptians.
