PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A big challenge in classrooms is providing challenging and creative options for students who finish regular assignments quickly. One option, as long as the regular assignments are completed with quality, is to offer choices of extensions. Each choice extends learning for plate tectonics-related concepts, requires high level thinking, and provides extensive activities that can be completed independently. A rubric with points that add up to 100 and 4 chances of earning an additional point for exceeding requirements is included. The following are some possible ways to use menu and rubric:

• The menu can be posted in the classroom for students to choose from as he/she finishes regular assignments early.
• Gifted students in a regular classroom can be required to complete 3 in a row (tic-tac-toe) during the unit.
• All students could be required to complete one activity as a unit project and present their projects at the end of the unit.
• As a jigsaw activity, assign a different extension to each group and have groups present so that the entire class benefits from the entire menu.
• Have students grade themselves on rubric and/or pair students for peer editing using rubric before turning in.
