Here's a quick way to cover fluid dynamics in a physics class. This rubric sets students up to do three things: 1) poster on a specific component of fluid dynamics - Bernouli's principle, Pascal's principle, gas laws, fluid flow, etc. 2) A worked out problem specific to their topic with units and variables . 3) A demonstration of the principle at work.
Students work in pairs to create a poster, a problem, and a demonstration to present to the class. The rubric makes it easy for you to grade all 3 components and easy for students to know exactly what you expect. You'll get good results using this rubric! Give students 2 days of class time (100 minutes in my case) and then plan for about 10 minutes per group to present. Assign the items from the list in order and every class will see a complete presentation on fluid dynamics. There are 15 possible presentations. Those toward the end of the list are extras or interesting applications of the principles, so if no one gets them, it doesn't diminish what students access.
