MIDTERM PROJECT in Google Classroom

MIDTERM PROJECT

In lieu of a midterm exam, you are taking on a project that will allow you to FURTHER EXPLORE and SHOWCASE some of the key concepts you have learned since the beginning of the school year. So far these are the topics we have covered:
Characteristics of Living Things (What makes something living?)
Prokaryotic vs. Eukaryotic Cells/Prokaryotes vs. Eukaryotes
Cellular Organization (from cells to organisms)/Cellular Differentiation and Specialization
Mitosis and Asexual Reproduction
Meiosis and Sexual Reproduction

RESOURCES: sample project
rubric
previous work/assignments
previous nearpod lessons (self-lauched)
video attachments

DIFFERENT WAYS OF SHOWCASING YOUR WORK:
- google slides (similar to the sample project)
-nearpod lessons
-flipgrid videos
-other preferred ways approved by the teacher

MIDTERM PROJECT TIMELINE: (Please adhere to the timeline.)
Day 1: Project Introduction/Resources Introduction/Previous Topic Review/Organism Identification
Day 2: Identifying an organism and conducting research and/or reviewing previous nearpod lessons; putting information on the "Midterm Project Research" assignment.
Day 3: Begin work on topics 1and 2.
Day 4: Continue work on topics 3 & 4.
Day 5: Finalize midterm project, with topic 5.
Day 6: Revise/Improve/Add based on teacher and peer feedback.

***NOTE: Whole group/small group/individual feedback will happen daily. Please ensure you are incorporating feedback into your midterm project. ***

Individual Investigation PLAN in Google Classroom

Individual Investigation PLAN

Describe what you plan to investigate and how you are going to that.

For example:
I intend to investigate whether the shape of the nose cone of a straw rocket affects the distance it travels. In order to do this, I will take 3 straws of the same dimensions, and make them the body of my straw rockets. The first straw rocket will have a round nose cone; the second will have a triangle nose cone, and the third will have a square nose cone.

SUCCESS CRITERIA CHECKLIST:
- investigation described
- general materials included
- general procedure included
- academic vocabulary used
(Examples of academic vocabulary used in my sample response above: investigate, dimensions)
