This is a huge project I do with students each year, and they LOVE it! It consists of 3 big parts:
1. Continents - students choose 1 of the 7 continents that we have already spent 1-2 weeks researching. They have to research basic information about it (size, location, population, climate, etc.).
2. Biomes - students choose 1 major biome on the continent they chose. They have to research flora, fauna, characteristics and fauna adaptations for survival.
3. Catastrophic Events - students choose one natural disaster that occurs on the continent they chose. They have to reserach all about the natural disaster and one historical event that occured on their continent.
**I also created a group contract that students fill out at the beginning of the project.
***There is also a rubric and reflection sheet for this project.
