After the state testing is over and the curriculum is all taught, then what do you do? Projects of course. With this project I had my students make a science themed hat in partners. They got to pick any topic we learned about during the year and design a hat around it. They made an informational card to go along with it that taught about their chosen topic. The best part was that they ended up teaching a kindergartener how to make it. It turned out super cute and both my kids and the little ones had a blast.
I have included the project explanation and grading rubric in a word document so you can make any necessary changes. There is also an example of the information card and pictures of some of my finished products.
It really was a lot of fun.
