I use this Choice Board-based project as an end of the year final grade. It allows the kids to really show their creativity and helps them practice research and presentation skills. The RUBRIC guides them to an awesome grade-- and I always enjoy seeing their final products. The project includes Abiotic & Biotic Factors, as well as a comprehensive evaluation of the specific ecosystem on Earth, by having them take notes about the ecosystem's general features,water, landforms, and three (3) example Plants & Animals and their adaptations to their environment. Science Rocks with Smalley!
