I love opportunities to brag on students that do some great work. As often as I can, I'll send something in to Twitter or other teachers in our school. It's always great sending something out, but it's even better when it is a student that blindsides you with an amazing project...and that happened to me today.
I assigned a research project where students picked any topic, as long as it related to chemistry. They chose three essential questions and then did a project sharing what they learned. A lot of students build a Blogger site or a Wix page, and some did powerpoint presentations in front of a small group of students. Others chose to do videos, and the video I've linked below from a student really blew me away with its simplicity and the personality of the student that comes through.
Take a couple minutes to watch these...I'd love to be able to pass some comments along to this student about her work.
