This project uses differentiated instruction to allow students to choose their presentation method, from a basic PowerPoint to developing a model to writing a newspaper article to creating a poster. This kit includes a handout for students with the project requirements, a rubric for grading, a list of websites for researching, a sign-up sheet, a teacher stats sheets, and a PowerPoint example. This project is sure to take the boredom out of research and engage your students!
