Looking for a final project for a unit on Hot and Cold Temperatures? Look no further! Parents and Students LOVE this project that has students pretend they are research scientists building an insulator!
"You are a research scientist who moves to a newly discovered planet called Insulato. The temperature there is usually between forty and fifty-five degrees celsius every day! You need lots of cool drinks when you are outside checking your spaceship in the mid-day sun. Your favorite drink is Iced Cherry Blaster, but you like it chilled not lukewarm."
The file includes an editable project handout / parent letter, a project planning page and a editable project rubric (which uses categorical grading).
The project rubric links to Alberta curriculum outcomes and competencies.
