Are your students getting bored of school? Spice things up with this hands on, higher thinking skilled science project!
Do you need to teach one more standard in Next Generation Science? Use this to teach the engineering part of 4th grade science! This is used at the end of the year after you have taught most of the Next Generation science standards in 4th grade. Students will pick a topic that you have already taught from the topic list created. These topics go right along with the next gen standards. After they choose a topic they create an experiment to go along with that topic. They need to be creative. There are graphic organizers to go along with their research/experiment/ data collecting to help them stay organized. After they have done the experiment there is a part 2 the informative presentation. They have choices on how they can present and each choice has a requirements handout for them to easily see what needs to be included.
This gives them a hands on, fun learning for that end of the year "I want to be done" attitude.
