Needs Improvement 1–0 You have not used all of your poster space. The work is thrown together or incomplete. Your work shows me you may not understand the subject.

Your Score

You have used your space and the poster has a finished appearance. I can see some evidence in the text and coloring that you rushed a bit to complete the project. You explain the basic parts of the cycle and their definitions. As we discussed in class, I would like to see more details drawn from your text and other sources. It is important to explain the processes that form the 3 rock types.




Your poster is accurate and provides details beyond the 3 parts of the cycle. Your work shows me you did research to increase your understanding.

You have not provided any details. Your information is inaccurate. Your work shows me you may not understand the subject.



Your work is imaginative and presents the information in a way that may be novel (new and unique).

You have presented the information neatly but the work looks similar to others.

Your work is incomplete or you have inappropriately copied other peoples’ work.


I observed you during your work and see you took it a different direction from the models you saw. Good Job!
