This project is a culminating activity that I used at the end of the 6th grade science unit on plants. Essentially, students are asked to imagine a new species of plant and tell about how it survives and reproduces.
Directions for students, a student checklist, and a scoring rubric for teachers are included with the project.
I had each individual student submit a project that they worked on at home, although this could easily be a partner or small group project. Can also be used as an in-class or computer based project.
