I am an 8th grade Science educator from a suburban district in southwest Missouri. One of the units we study is Weather. As an assessment tool students are allowed to create a Flip video displaying their knowledge of what they learned in the unit. Students are asked to create a video over a 3 day period where they document 5 variables of the weather: wind speed, temperature, barometric pressure, humidity and dew point. They also are required to discuss the high/low pressure systems in our area and make a weather prediction for the next day. On day 2 they are to review their prediction from the previous day then make a prediction for the coming day. Students loved this option and it creates an amazing assessment tool.
