This is an excellent project that is not only hands-on but also extremely visual and creative. There is no confusion as far as how it will be graded with the detailed rubric that I recommend you give to the students soon after explaining the assignment. If the directions are followed and checked off as you go- it will be an "easy" assignment from the kids' perspectives.
It is also very straight forward and easy to grade because of the rubric.
What I also love about this project is that you can honestly use it over and over again with almost any subject area and it doubles as a GREAT up-to-date bulletin board!! Feel free to tweak it for your age group and subject matter.
Hope you enjoy- Mrs. Get Over It
