Science Project Information

Alsalamo Alikom dear Parents                                        
Insha'Allah grade 6 students will be working on their first science project.
The project is that they have to create their own animal by choosing different parts of animals according to the importance of those parts and how those parts help the animal to survive within the biodiversity around it.
This project will help the students to think critically which is a higher order thinking level and show their creativity.
The due date is: Wednesday, September 24th.
The project idea: Students have to draw their imaginary animal on half of the chart and list the different parts of the animal's body and explain why they chose those parts and their importance on the other half.
The rubric is attached.
Looking forward to show me your creativity my beloved students :)
