Highly flexible take-home project! Kids LOVE this earth science project because they can choose from a variety of ways to show what they have learned about plate tectonics. Many options are listed, from art projects and models to videos and presentations (and more). Students are given the concepts that must be included in their project, including topics in the following categories: plate boundary types, crust types, land forms, and other important items. Each item that must be covered is assigned a certain number of points. How they choose to demonstrate their knowledge is up to them, but the guidelines are clear.
Detailed instructions and a student-friendly explanation of grading is included.
