I created these for the end-of-the-year awards ceremony. I wanted a way to incorporate a bit of science, as well as a way to call out students who may not otherwise be called out during awards ceremonies. I print them on nice, thick, card stock to make them more "official looking".
Included: The Phase Change Award (for showing the greatest change in attitude and effort from the beginning to the end of the year), The Chemical Compound Award (awarded to two students for being physically inseparable), The Maximum KE Award (for having the most energy), The Maximum PE Award (for being at the top of the class), The Yttrium Award (for being the most curious, always asking "why?") and the Noble Gas Award (for being the quietist and least likely student to cause a problem).
Students have really come to anticipate my science awards each year!
*Please let me know if the file comes distorted in any way, I posted these as word documents so you could fill in students names, dates & teacher name, but sometimes it may open funny. I'd be glad to resend separate files.
