Week long student project, no prep needed.
Students have two options - create a powerpoint or video about their family tree (or a famous family)
-A progress check for every day of the week (student on task etc)
-Two rubrics/checklists for a video and for a Powerpoint presentation.
Student centered, very low prep, and the students love this project!
3 grades for the students (in this rubric they are called formative grades, if you don't use that system you can easily edit to whichever grading system you use)
