Great resource for project-based learning activity that incorporates some rigor and relevance.

Great tool for the upper grade levels for elementary school. However, teachers of the lower grade levels can look at it and get a feeling of what is to come for their students. Assuring the students comprehend, master, and are proficient in the skills taught to them in the earlier grade levels, will help make them successful for the more complex lessons.
