Year Long Projects Grades 5-7
At the beginning of the school year, the students were given the task of choosing a notable person in the world to study.
Using a variety of resources including books, websites and videos each student uncovered interesting facts about the person’s early life, education, work experience and contributions to society. Poems, speeches and images coloured the displays which were shared with student, teachers and parents.
The list of notables included Emily Carr, Simon Fraser, Martin Luther King Jr. and a few Chinese generals. The students were able to talk about their notable with confidence and deep knowledge.
