Product Description
This activity provides students with a chance to practice scientific communicating skills. Students choose a rock sample, describe it to the group and then create a poster session about that rock. This gives a practical and motivating reason for research. After creating the poster, students write a newspaper article about their discovery. The posters make a vivid display of learning on a bulletin board or a learning wall. If possible, print the poster on cardstock. This lesson includes teacher instructions, rubric for scoring, poster printable, and a writing planning page for the newspaper article. This lesson is included in the book Rising to the Challenge of the National Science Education Standards, also sold on this website. The lesson will also be available in a packet of nine process skill lessons on rocks.
