This Print and Go resource allows your students to participate in an authentic Project-Based Learning experience.


This curriculum includes 7 detailed lesson plans, checklists, planning pages, 2 PowerPoint presentations, rubrics, reflection pages, handouts and graphic organizers for each lesson, editable PowerPoint copies of most of the graphic organizers, rubrics, and support materials for the teacher.
