Abstract There are many different kinds and sizes of museums, ranging from the enormous Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., to the very compact museum you see pictured here. The sixth graders in this photograph Sixth graders showing off their Civil War Museum are proudly sharing the museum they themselves cre-ated in their Fairfax County, Virginia, classroom. The museum features Civil War artifacts and documents, many of which originated in the vicinity of the Manas-sas Battleground near the students ' hometown. In the process of making their own classroom museum, the students were able to sharpen their data-gathering, or-ganizational, writing, and problem-solving skills-while experiencing the excitement oflearning about the past through clues found close to home.
