Need a high-quality lesson to keep kids busy for at least 2 weeks? This is it. Have students choose their own adventure!

This can be used with students who are virtual/at home, in-person at school, or a combination of both (I sometimes have students who are virtual who want to work with students who are in-class).

When I have several virtual kids gone at a time, I make them work together in breakout rooms on a shared document (so I have less to grade). The sheet has students get approval on their setup along the way, helping guide them towards a testable, well-designed experiment, differentiated to their level.

Note that it CAN get a little chaotic trying to check off multiple groups at once, if you have lots of separate projects- that’s where having kids work in groups helps.

Students design an experiment and they practice identifying variables, graphing, doing data analysis, writing a CER, and more. All groups present their findings at the end.
