I used this in my fifth grade classroom this year with great success! After studying harmful and beneficial microorgansms (S5L1 in the Georgia Standards), students worked independently on this task.
They made informational SlideShows on a microorganism of their choosing. They then presented their posters to their classmates. This summative assessment was used in addition to a traditional paper/pencil test.
You will receive the rubric for the project and a student instruction page in this purchase.
This product is included in a bundle of 3 project rubrics & instructions which can be found here:
5th Grade Microorganisms Project BUNDLE
At $3.00, the bundle will save you a total of $1.50 (one rubric free)
This purchase includes both a .pdf file and an editable .doc version of the file.
