     7th Grade Assessment

    Students will create a public service announcement on the topics covered in 7th grade health. The goal of the public service announcement is to motivate the audience to take a specific action that promotes healthy choices.  Students will be able to work in groups of three or four during the development of the project.  Students will be given a detailed explanation and requirements for this project during class.
