This mini-project is perfect for the end of the year after state testing is over! I combined this with a poster group project in my classroom to inspire students to learn more about college and to start thinking about their futures. The first part of the project asks students to find out more about a college or university of their choice. The second part asks students to design their own college or university. Ideally, you would be able to take them to a computer lab for the first part to research their university; if not, you could assign the first part for homework and let them complete the second part in class.
I hope this project will be helpful during those last few days (or any other time)!
