Product Description
This project was used as a culminating task for my Grade 4 students for our science unit on Rocks & Minerals. The project asks students to choose or design a product made from rocks and/or minerals that is used in daily life. Students then have to present their product to the "Dragon's Den" panel (the equivalent of "Shark Tank" in the United States). At my school, our Dragon's Den included two teachers and a parent volunteer. I had students work in groups of 3-4.

We watched clips of the Dragon's Den before beginning this project so students had an idea of what they were working towards, as well as ideas about how to promote their product. Clips of the show are available on YouTube. In my classroom, I also added a competitive element to the project - only three groups' projects were chosen by the Dragon's Den for investment.

My students loved this project! They loved having the opportunity to be creative and use their knowledge from the unit to create something new.

This project combines curriculum expectations from both the Ontario Grade 4 science curriculum and media literacy (language) curriculum. A rubric (focused on media literacy) is also included.
