This is a long term project that I've used with intermediate level students when studying Ecosystems and Biomes. It is a Jigsaw II project where three students are assigned a biome and each one has a subtopic, "Animals, Plants, Geography/Climate." Students can meet in Biome groups and subtopic groups. I give them the rubric BEFORE the project begins so that they will know exactly how it will be graded. My students always beg to do these kinds of Jigsaw projects.
