PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The PowerPoint and grading rubric I use for my 9th grade physics Rube Goldberg Project. The PowerPoint gives an introduction to the project with the expectations. It also includes YouTube links to some sample machines as hyperlinks. The grading rubric is very detailed to make it explicit how I grade the project so students know why they received the grade they did. I give this out when I assign the project in class so they know exactly what is expected of them. This could be used in conjunction with school writing/presenting/critical thinking/etc. rubrics or as a stand-alone. I typically give 3-5 class periods in class to work on spread over 3 weeks to give time to work at home depending on the timing and the level of the students. Students may build in class, afterschool, or at home. I typically assign in early December to have it due after winter break so they can either be proactive and finish before break or have something to get together with their classmates and work on during break. I say it is due the day we return, but give them that last period to get together with their groups, finalize their work, and put it all together for submission. Which is a nice way to ease back into school after break!
