Students have been studying a topic of their choice for that last few weeks. They have been researching, planning and writing a book. The book is entirely an in-class project. There is another part of this that is a home assignment, students have the choice of completing a poster or a 3-D model. Directions below:

  • Diagram on a Poster
    • Of one important thing within your topic
    • At least 8 labels
    • each label with at least 3 describing sentences
    • Color
  • 3-D Model
    • Of one important thing within your topic
    • 8 parts of the model numbered (small pieces of tape work well for these numbers)
    • A key for each number with at least 3 describing sentences for each number. The key can be in a little notebook or peices of paper.
