After being presented with a variety of unexplained phenomenon, students will choose a phenomenon to complete a project on. Their job is to prove or disprove the existence of an unexplained phenomenon (Bigfoot, UFO’s, The Bermuda Triangle, etc.). Students will have the option to complete a PowerPoint Presentation, a Prezi, or a tri-fold board presentation. A rubric will be provided to each student prior to beginning the project. Students will be required to research credible sources, delineate information, cite sources in correct format, and present their findings. Students will also provide peer review feedback before presentations for editing/revision purposes and after presentations for direct overall feedback.
