Created for a Highly Gifted classroom, but great for any fifth grade class looking for a challenging and creative independent project to complete their Explorers Unit, this document contains Tips for the Teacher, Materials needed, Anchor standards addressed, an anticipatory set based on Carol Ann Tomlinson’s approach for gifted students beginning long-term projects, a detailed 100 point rubric, a list of helpful resources, and a suggested timeline for completion. The project itself involves student choice between two products; a treasure chest filled with specific artifacts from the explorer's life, and a gameboard that traces his explorations. Both products are high on Depth of Knowledge (DOK) and Bloom's Taxonomy. Great for differentiation!
