The Passion Project is a month long inquiry project that allows middle years students to explore their interests and passions, all awhile hitting on 20+ curriculum outcomes.
The project itself (not included) has 3 components: 5 paragraph essay, visual display board and a creative piece.
I typically start this project mid-November to help with students keeping their focus leading up to Christmas. Prior to Christmas I host a school wide 'Celebration of Learning' where all students have their projects on display allowing them to share their learning and experience.
PLEASE NOTE - The Passion Project Brainstorm is FREE. Look for the actual project and intro PowerPoint in my store.
