Reflection: Performance Tasks Plant Posters - Section 3: Evaluating Work


I have included a spot that is very thorough, clear, well organized and has great detail in the steps. From the initial look, I would have thought this poster was a perfect example of what I was looking for.  However, only step 1 and step 2 touch on the plant needs concept.  So this is a great piece for the ELA portion but not complete for the science criteria (as far as plant needs).  The students did do a great job with sharing their diagrams and observations/notes from previous entries and their experience in the garden.  

Please note that these are unedited posters.  Since this was an "assessment" I didn't require a pre-write or a 1st draft.
