PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I use these projects with my 6th grade honors classes because they offer creative and analytical options, although they can be used in any type classroom. I assign them 2 weeks prior to the due date. Once or twice during the 2-week period, students spend a few minutes with others completing the same project to compare their progress. Each option requires research with a bibliography page and includes well developed requirements. A rubric with points that add up to 100 and 4 chances of earning an additional point for exceeding requirements is included.

The six plate tectonics options are:
*Recent Volcanic Eruptions
*Recent Earthquakes
*Plate Tectonics Children's Book
*Journey to the Center of the Earth
*Extraterrestrial Mountains Website
*Earth Cutaway Scale Model

The following are some possible ways to use the projects and rubric:
• Gifted students in a regular classroom can be required to choose and complete one project during the unit.
• All students could be required to complete one activity as a unit project and present their projects at the end of the unit.
• As a jigsaw activity, assign a different project to each group and have groups present so that the entire class benefits from the entire list.
• Have students grade themselves on rubric and/or pair students for peer editing using rubric before turning in.

Thank you for considering this product!
