Researching helps students to gain a more concrete and understanding of what they are learning. For this assignment, students will choose one type of body of water and create a poster. The poster must include the definition of the body of water, 3 real examples of the body of water (i.e. if they chose rivers, real examples could include The Nile River, The Colorado River, etc.) Students must give details about the real examples such as where they are located, how big they are, and any other information that they feel is interesting and worth mentioning. Students will also include information about what life is like for people who live near the body of water, and any benefits that the body of water provides.
Teachers can assign students specific bodies of water or give students a choice. Afterward, students can present their posters to the class, sharing their knowledge about their body of water. Thus combining research, writing, and public speaking skills into one powerful assignment.
