8-3 Presentation Wrap-Up ( 3 pages/ power point )
In this learning block, you will use what you have learned to complete your third and final project, a presentation. In this project, you will organize the work you have done throughout Themes 3 and 4 and assemble a presentation that discusses why the question you developed in your Project 2 question development worksheet is important and communicates the value of studying the natural sciences. In this learning block, you will submit your Project 3 presentation. This will bring Theme 4 to a close. Be sure to carefully review the assignment instructions and rubric so you can address all of the important pieces of this assignment and earn maximum points. Pay specific attention to the “Supporting Work and Resources” section, which identifies where you have already made progress to address the critical elements of the presentation prompt throughout the course.
