8th Grade Digital Projects = Work and Power

2-14-17      MS-PS3-5.

Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the motion energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.

Bell Ringer - Create a rubric:

  1. All digital assignments must include all identifiable information for each member of the group (names, document title, grade, HR#, can edit must be checked). A title that grabs the reader’s attention in the body of the text.

  2. Illustrations must include the website and a caption

  3. A  clear and concise explanation of work and power using student's words - Do not copy from the book.

  4. Scientific understandings must be shared using correct vocabulary

  5. Presenters must make eye contact with the audience as they speak clearly and loud

  6. All members must share during oral presentations

  7. All rules of writing apply

  8. Engage the audience as you present

  9. Be respectful of each other

  10. Remain on topic during oral presentations
