This project meets the following school-wide learning expectations:
1. Use appropriate research strategies to find and evaluate information.
2. Write for a variety of purposes and audiences.
3. Create and deliver a presentation.
4. Read, analyze, and apply information from a variety of written and other sources.
Let’s make a “baby book” to demonstrate our knowledge of the lives and death of the stars!
Remember that stars may follow different paths from life to death (what determines this?) Make sure to use some of the vocabulary listed below (whatever applies to your stars’ situation). Include hand drawn pictures to illustrate your book. Using descriptive sentences write narration that corresponds to your colorful drawings and is clear to the reader/listener. After your artwork and narration is complete, you will use screen-cast-o-matic to record the narration for your fictional star baby.
You may use chapters 13-15 in your book (a very good source) for research, the short movies we watch, as well as internet sources that are credible.
