It also includes a menu of creative project choices such as posters, fodables, brochures, poems, kids books, songs, comic strips, magazine or newspaper articles, powerpoints, television scripts, journal articles, etc. This allows every student to choose a creative project that fits with their personal learning style. Creative projects are a great way for students to synthesize what they have learned and create something special that they can take ownership over. Creative projects are an excellent way for students to review and process everything and conceptualize material at a deeper level. The project guidelines are aligned to 7th-grade science essential standards (Forces and Motion Unit). The project directions are also in Spanish.
