Incredible differentiated assessment for students of all needs in the Science classroom. Amongst the abstract astronomy unit, students are presented with the opportunity to become experts on a specific planet. This project includes detailed instructions, helpful links for research, 20+ components for research data included boxes to fill in with the information, the "how to's" for writing a bibliography, a "day of presentation" checklist, and most importantly - the rubric for which students will be assessed.
This is an absolute favorite for my students every year, as it gives them an opportunity to exemplify their knowledge in a unique matter. The major requirements include: completed research, a powerpoint presentation, a visual aid, and a bibliography.
I have included this project in two formats for your convenience: a PDF file and a Microsoft Word document.
