This product, by It’s Not Rocket Science, is a student-led review resource to prepare your class for your midterm or final exam. Students will work in groups to create an exam review presentation for one of the units covered on your exam, essentially being able to teach the class! Through the implementation of this resource, students are challenged to learn the material well enough that they can break it down to a simple level to teach the content to their classmates. The sample student handouts included are written for a physical science class, but this project can be adapted for any subject!

Why should I use this product in my classroom?

Reviewing a class for a midterm or end of year exam can be exhausting and draining for a teacher. Take some of the pressure off by giving your students a chance to lead the review. Not only will they take ownership and relieve you, they will also master the content better because they’ve been pushed to teach it themselves. Everybody benefits!

What is included?

      • 4 pages of teacher implementation notes

      • 4 pages of student handouts including project overview, rubric, completion checklist, and peer evaluation form

      • Editable version of the project overview so you can adapt for any content area

Is this aligned to Next Generation Science Standards*?

YES! All of my products are aligned with specific Next Generation Science Standards. This product, in particular, covers the majority of the physics based standards for middle school physical science, but can be adapted for any subject area!
