Each year our 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students practice important lifelong skills culminating in a presentation in front of their classmates. Students select a topic of interest and turn in assignments each week as they research information. For five weeks, students are working on time management, collecting reliable and relevant resources, asking critical questions, synthesizing information learned, taking notes, compiling information into a written format and finally choosing from a variety of unique ways to share what they learned. Pictured below are our 5th graders sharing their very last independent inquiry presentations.
