In the 5th grade, there are many project-based opportunities to bring learning to life! What my students look forward to the most is our Christmas Around the World Celebration, where they research how different countries celebrate the holidays! Then they work together to create persuasive videos to show their families at our potluck celebration. The 5th graders love creating new inventions to prepare for Shark Tank! They create a website, flyers, and a commercial for their new invention and pitch their idea to the sharks. Our big project at the end of the year is our state reports. Students get to work on their informational writing skills to research, draft, and edit their reports. Then they create beautiful displays to showcase at our annual State Fair.
