Research/Big 6 Project
Students choose a scientific topic to research. We then go through the Big 6 steps of how to complete a research or expository paper.
Students works in small groups to make a toy Gravity Cruiser. They must decide on a variety of materials and designs to get their cruiser to meet the goals of the project. Students then test their cruisers to see which design works the best and why.
