Vinci Park School 4th Grade Mission Model Project Guidelines

If a student chooses to do a mission model, it MUST NOT be from a kit purchased at a craft store or other store.  Instead, it may be made of cardboard, craft sticks, clay, mud or other materials.

The debate
Should students be required to build mission models, which many people see as symbols of European domination and genocide over the native peoples of California??
Read this perspective from Metroactive.com .
In Mr. Curry's class, students have many options in showcasing their knowledge of California history.  These options include the traditional mission model, a research report, a power point presentation, a clay relief map of California and any other approved student proposal.
