# Structure and Transformation of Matter Unit Project

```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.
([email protected]) but I am also available by phone (781-4544
ext. 202).
