3D Project: Diorama


Essay

February is Black History Month and in celebration of Black History Month you have the option to complete a diorama OR an essay.
3D Diorama: You will create an artistic 3D representation of a significant person, invention or event that has contributed {positively} to African American history. Your 3D project should be accompanied by a one page report. The report can be written or typed but must be double-spaced. For hand written reports you should skip a line when writing the final draft.

Some things that you may want to include in your one page report are:



  • Birthplace

  • Education/Training,

  • What did they invent or what are they famous for?

  • How did/does their work or invention help or inspire others?

Your handwriting and completed diorama need to be as neat as possible.

You should think outside the box and be as creative as possible. Explore people/events that you aren’t familiar with and use a variety of materials. For instance, a diorama could consist of a scene of Madame C. J. Walker inventing hair relaxer. You may use whatever materials you like to recreate scenes, such as but not limited to shoeboxes, modeling clay, construction paper, hand-drawn, or computer images. Also in the making of your diorama, be sure to think about your housing of your project. You really don’t have to use a shoebox to make your diorama. You can use any number of interesting containers in order to make a really unique diorama housing. For example, if you are going to make a diorama about an astronaut you might want to use a space shuttle shape diorama housing. This adds a level of uniqueness that makes your diorama more meaningful. It gives people something to talk about. Think about what your diorama is going to be about and then look around for housing ideas. Choose a housing idea that looks really nice and gives the whole diorama a very sophisticated look.



Remember: a diorama not only shows a scene, but they can tell a story by capturing a significant moment in time.

Essays

Your assignment: Explore people that you aren’t familiar with. African-American history is full of fascinating stories, rich culture, great art, and courageous acts that can be researched to educate people who read your essay. For example, Daniel Hale Williams was the first person to successfully complete open heart surgery.

Requirements: Your essay is to be 3 -4 pages long, written or typed (double-spaced). If typed the font should be 12 pt. sized. You should also include a reference page. This page should document any sources you used to gather information for your paper. The essay should be neatly put together and full of information that highlights the historical figure you chose to research. Please be careful not to plagiarize any information.
This essay should include:


  1. Birth date of historical figure

  2. Early life, childhood

  3. Educational background

  4. The significance to African American culture

  5. Any obstacles they faced

  6. Triumphs or Awards they have achieved or received

  7. What did they invent or what are they famous for?

  8. How did/does their work or invention help or inspire others?

Each student must submit the name of an African American for teacher’s approval before starting the project. This process ensures there are not several duplications of the same person being researched.
