Science: do you have students that understand and can regurgitate content but do not know who to use it or make connections between other areas within your content? If so, Terra Forma Cards is your solution to a student autonomous and differentiated short or longterm project that connects the content dots.
Simply have the students choose cards from pairs that resonates with them. Use the content in the categories on the back of the card and fill in a catalyst question (or one chosen by you as the teacher) and you now have an ungoogleable question to answer.
