After students learn all their earth science topics, I like to have a project to end the unit. We do a 3D wall mural. Each group gets a specific topic to research, design a display, and create their display that has to fit together with other topics from other groups. It takes us about a week, but it can be stretched out, as well. Instructions for students, plan book with sections for all needed parts, student checklist, and suggested topics are included. Pictures of the final wall are also included. Look for pictures of student examples in my store.
If this is on too large a scale for your needs, look for my Earth Science File Folder Project that is done individually.
