Choose Your Own Disaster

Our fourth grade AIG class was studying natural disasters and we wanted to come up with something new. So, using the Choose Your Own Adventure books I loved growing up as inspiration, we decided to have them research a disaster and come up with different scenarios for what to do. We started with research, then had them break the information into 2 possible choices, with two results each. The graphic organizer helped them get that part! Once they did the research, they wrote a paragraph for each spot on the organizer, then cut them out and pasted them on chart paper on which they added a title, etc. I took some pictures of the final projects but they all turned out too dark to see very well for some reason. What new ideas for presenting information have you used or seen?

Research, research, research! The blue paper on top is the rubric.
