Room 206 Projects 2012-2013

There will be several longer projects throughout the year. Detailed instructions will be handed out once the project begins. Here is an overview of our three big projects:

  • Fall: Wolf Research. Students will explore wolves in many ways: going to see wolves, using a DNR wolf kit, reading text, reading a novel - Julie of the Wolves and other adventures. All reading and note-taking will take place in class. Students will write a final paper, 3 or more pages plus artwork. Due before winter break. Students will also perform The True Story of the Three Little Pigs during the "Candlelight Cafe", tentatively scheduled for January 17, 2013 (rehearsals immediately following break).
  • Winter: Ten-Project. Students will spend a minimum of ten hours investigating, exploring, researching or experiencing something in which they are interested - a chance to go deeper on something they've always wanted to learn. Students will work on this at home, writing a paper and preparing an oral presentation. Due before spring break.
  • Ongoing: Community Involvement Project. Students will be paired with a resident - their "elder buddy" - from Walker Place senior residence. They are very excited to work with the class! Students will walk (please sign and return the permission form) to the residence at 38th and Bryant about once a month to interview the seniors about their lives and childhood experiences, particularly about when they were in 5th or 6th grade. Students will write a report based on their findings, and work with their buddy on editing. Due at the end of the year (TBD).
