Project Based Learning, Earth Day Invention is an opportunity for students to create an invention that will improve the earth.
This project allows kids to think and create of unique ways to change (and help) the world. Students can work individually or in groups. They can even take their ideas from paper/pencil and create models with some of the extensions ideas listed at the end.
From the PBL:
"Earth Day officials are asking students from around the globe to invent a machine that can help save the environment and make the world a better place. There are no rules, regulations, or budgets to worry about. The only thing you must remember is the ultimate goal:
Make the world a better place."
Included are six pages that include:
