Name: _______________________________________________ Date: 09/20/13 Due Monday 09/30/13 Students will have time to work on the project in class on Thursday 9/26. This will not be enough time for them to complete the project so the rest will need to be done at home. Students can use any format (typed, handwritten, PowerPoint, Prezi, poster, etc…) to create their product. Help from parents, siblings, notebooks, textbooks, etc… is encouraged. Please read over the rubric as this is how the projects will be scored. Structure and Transformation of Matter Unit Project Option 1: Create a journal or notebook written from the view point of matter. Option 2: Create a rap song or poem about matter. Option 3: Create a preview or trailer for a movie about matter. *Examples of each option can be found on Ms. Blythe’s science web page. Students and parents should review the project options together. Decide which option will best suit you. Complete the bottom portion of this page and return to school on Monday 9/23. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me. Email is best ([email protected]) but I am also available by phone (781-4544 ext. 202). _______________________________ ___________________________________ student name parent signature Please check to indicate your choice: ________ Option 1: Create a journal or notebook written from the view point of matter. ________ Option 2: Create a rap song or poem about matter. ________ Option 3: Create a preview or trailer for a movie about matter.
