Studying the resources of the earth - minerals, gemstones, earth's resources? Just need a good research project? This project has all the steps laid out, as well as a grading rubric. Students choose an earth's resources from a provided list to research. (Some of the possible choices are: diamond, pearl, gold, silver, clay, loam, sand, granite, ruby, sapphire, uranium, petroleum, and obsidian.)
There are questions in this project to help guide their research. Students should use books, kid-friendly search engines and websites to complete their research. Once students have completed their research, they will create an online poster using one of three different websites.
See exactly what you're receiving when you download this file, by clicking on the green PREVIEW button.
The online posters make a wonderful addition to student created online portfolios!
Also available in my store is a rock research project.
