Unit Assessment: The Story of A Rock

This past week, my sixth grade students wrapped up their unit on earth science.  Over the last few weeks, we have covered topics like the layers of the earth, plate tectonics, rocks, minerals, the rock cycle, weathering, and erosion.  To sum it all up, I asked students to create a story about a rock, tying together these different topics.

A few students emphasized the story part (missing the science), while a few got the science down pat but missed the mark on the storyline. One group, however, did an EXCELLENT job with not just their story and science but also their animation! These students used an iPad app to animate their Story of A Rock.

Enjoy!
