Perfect for new teachers or those more experienced, this five-day project has students choose a topic and conduct a survey of their classmates, predict results, and present it to the class at the end. Students gain skills in critical thought, gathering and organizing data and presenting information. BONUS FOR YOU: nothing to mark except the presentation. Students are able to choose their own topic, as just about anything works with it. I also build in a daily log sheet where students record how they've used their time each day in order to hold them accountable.
