  1.   Evolution Project
This is a project I use as a test following our unit on Evolution. The students work in groups to make a poster illustrating the main concepts in the unit. They are asked to "show, don't tell" and then are given oral questions to answer when the project is graded. I give them the questions when they get the project instructions and then write them on different colored index cards. When I grade the poster each student picks one card of each color and only answers those questions. Since they don't know which they will get they need to study them all. They can look at the poster while answering but can't help each other out. They all get a chance at the extra credit question. This project works well with both English language learners and Special Ed students since they are asked to "show" what they have learned. They can not write definitions on the poster. They also complete a peer evaluation form, their grade is adjusted accordingly for a low participation evaluation by their peers.

...nerate (die and then grow anew). Heart cells and nerve cells, however, do not. Why do you think that most of our cells regenerate? Why don't we keep the same cells for our entire life? What would be the advantages and/or disadvantages of having our heart and nerve cells regenerate? 3. The theory of evolution states that, over hundreds of millions of years, simple early life forms such as bacteria changed and developed into more complex life forms, eventually leading to the development of human beings. Discuss how this process works and how life forms can change over generations. 4. Based on your knowledge of a...
