Love this idea! My 5th grade science teacher let us do something similar to this, and I still remember how empowering it was to research a topic I was passionate about, create a model, and present to my peers. The information gained about the structure and function of the eye helped me emotionally process the surgery my mother was undergoing at the time to repair a detached retina. You never know what personal connections your students will make when you leave room for student choice!
