Turn your students into teachers! In this project, your students will research a topic of your choice, turn what they’ve learned into a BIG book for young children, and then present their book to an elementary class. Since the BIG book will have very few words and big, colorful pictures, your students will have to further explain and describe scientific concepts.
This is a great project that can be tailored to any class. This particular one was designed for an earth science lesson, but you could easily alter it for chemistry, astronomy, physics, language arts, social studies, etc.
Everything you need to introduce, implement, and grade the project is here. You can do this project in groups (preferred) or individually. I would suggest that you contact some of your elementary colleagues and schedule a day that your students can present. The elementary students will LOVE this. And your students will feel pretty good about it too.
