I was looking for a way to have the students synthesize what it was that they had learned, incorporate some essay writing, include speaking and listening standards, and be creative.
I also wanted to give scientists choice.
This final project designed for my third grade class and our Animal and Plant adaptation unit is how I met the goals for our room. Students have completed wonderful projects, posters, dolls, and animal like creations.
We have a museum of these projects and it's been a fun way to wrap up the unit.
