Please follow the directions
Plate Tectonics Project
Object: Present your knowledge of Earth’s plate boundaries and the landforms created by these boundaries.
Choose ONE of the following ways to determine your knowledge:
Create a model, sculpture, or painting. Your artwork must be accompanied by labels of each concept.
Write a poem, song, or rap. DO NOT COPY ONE FROM ONLINE OR YOUTUBE.
Create a children’s book. 
Design an informational website.
Create a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation of your knowledge.
Design a board game. 
Record a video. (Ideas might be to film yourself using props to explain the information.)
Invent your own project idea…but if you choose to do this it must be approved by your teacher.
This assignment is intended to be both fun and educational, and certainly NOT STRESSFUL! First, there is no need to spend money on the project. Use what you have at home. Second, don’t get stuck trying to make your project fit perfectly into one of the options above. The options listed are starting points for the project and are flexible. Third, feel free to take some creative liberties with it. Feel free to do what you need to do to “make it work.” Projects will be graded almost entirely on the inclusion of required information. 
Please use the rubric below to check that your project meets all the requirements.
