Do you need a project to illustrate research with the scientific method or a great end of the year project? Look no further. For those of you wrapping up the year after the AP Biology exam or standardized test, this project offers a lot of creativity and scientific thinking. You can have the students work individually or in pairs.
Students will each be given a cryptid to research. Cryptids such as Big Foot, the chupacabra and mermaids can all be easily researched online or through a smart device. Have the students decide whether they believe in it's existence or why they do not. your students must use scientific data to prove or disprove their existence. They must present their finding in an organized well designed power point and be enthusiastic in the presentation.
This bundle includes a list of cryptids, a student question worksheet to help springboard their research and an editable rubric for your grading ease.
