Tonight I will be presenting a sample presentation that I expect my Grade 3 students to be able to do at the end of their persuasive writing unit. The unit is called Sharing the Planet and the goal of the students is to come up with a product that will help with one of the environmental problems the world is currently facing. They can modify an already existing product or they can create something entirely new. Here is an outline of the tasks they have to complete.
I chose to do my presentation on a solar-powered air conditioner. It’s a simple presentation using simple vocabulary that I believe will not be difficult for my students to recreate. I’ve also attached a Google Forms drop-down rubric to assess their presentations.
