This is an independent and self chosen research project that will culminate in a class presentation. In a nutshell students get to select their own topic of study, conduct research and become the expert. Please help your child select a broad enough topic to study. Some possibilities: THINGS: trains, planes, dinosaurs, automobiles; TOPICS: wars, ancient Rome, countries, music, a specific animal
Slavery, diseases (or specific disease), medicine and cures, inventions, cryptids, the great Chicago fire, etc; PEOPLE: presidents, Walt Disney, heroes, etc.
