I have done a similar project for my 5th graders for years. By the time the kids reach this age, Valentine's Day seems a little awkward for them. Having them come up with a really unique box that might earn them a trinket put the "cool factor" back into Valentine's Day! I have had kids come up with robots, remote controlled boxes, a tank...such fun! I even had a kid wear a box around his body, and he was the container! Thanks for sharing the rubric and all of the other work. I never thought about graphing some of the data. That would be fun as well on the Promethean.
