 Unpack My PBL

Twice a year we post PBL Creation Challenges. As a starting point, we provide an overview/ topic, links to supporting materials, and a PBL Unpacked with suggested criteria. Your challenge is to create an engaging, rubric-anchored project from this starting point, then share it here on the PBL Lounge. Participants will have their work showcased on the Home Page of the PBL Lounge.


Here's a link to the Spring 2017 Challenge. Good Luck!
