Curriki’s resource library has dozens of PBL projects in all subjects and grade levels, developed and submitted by its teacher members. The advanced search feature is extensive, and will help you narrow your choices down using multiple criteria.
In addition to grade level and subject, you can choose more specific subject areas and types of materials you are searching for. Member ratings are another helpful guide in finding projects that work well.
Some of the more notable projects on the site include:
- Curriki Geometry – six projects for high school students that have extensive guidance, tools, resources and rubrics.
- Snake Egg Incubator – middle school project to construct a device that absorbs or releases thermal energy by chemical processes.
- Teaching Linear Equations through Running a Small Business – an 8-week Algebra I unit in which students use linear equations to predict demand, cost/revenue, and analyze the sales results of their business.
- Patterns, Variables and Functions – introducing algebra concepts to grades 5-6
- Physics of Sailing – students in grades 9-12 use their knowledge of physics concepts and Newton’s Laws to design a sail and keel for a racing sailboat.
Free registration is required to access the materials on the site. On Curriki, you can also create a library of your favorite PBL (and traditional) lesson plans and materials.
