  Abstract: This year marks the fifth Annual Physics Show hosted by students in my high school course. Originally implemented as an alternative summative assessment tool, the Physics Show has become an anticipated event for our district's fifth and sixth grade students. Physics students collaborate as teams in and out of class, abiding by specific guidelines and pre-determined timelines, to generate and perform a Physics "Magic" Show at the end of the academic year. The show is judged by faculty members based upon several criteria, including the Physics students' ability to clarify phenomena in an age-appropriate, yet accurate explanation. Examples of guidelines, judging rubrics and student demonstrations will be provided.
