Independent Research Project
This is the fifth grade CAPSTONE project!
Students will independently, at school, complete a detailed research project on a topic of their choice connected to 5th grade CORE. This culminating project will take place of direct CORE instruction as students will be asked to demonstrate their ability to problem solve, manage their time, utilize reading and writing skills honed throughout the year, and apply their CORE background knowledge to this project. This will culminate in a 5th grade capstone presentation that is 100% student driven.
Although this project is largely completed at school, some of the research may need to be extended beyond the classroom due to topic choices or time management. Each student is given a specific calendar to keep them on track as well as daily reminders regarding where they should be in the process. Please view the attachment below:
