Fourth graders are beginning Capstone Projects in their Enrichment Library classes. They will be spending the next three months working on these individual research projects on topics they choose themselves. The student will be completing the following steps as they learn and present their new knowledge:
- Pick a topic
- Decide on a research question
- Decide how to present your research findings
- Research and take notes
- Create your presentation to share your research findings
- Evaluate your presentation with a rubric
Our first activities have included brainstorming research topics. The students have been brainstorming topics on paper and by using the Idea Sketch iPad app.
We will continue to post updates about the Capstone Projects on our class blog, ThinkCreateCollaborate.blogspot.com. We're looking forward to learning along with our students! - Mrs. Rankin, RES Enrichment Teacher and Mrs. Redford, RES Teacher Librarian
