Important American Presentations!!

The last two days have been amazing in Room 16! We had many Important Americans grace us with their presence and they did an amazing job! 

This project is the first research project students in Room 16 were exposed to. Not only did they have to do plenty of non-fiction reading on their American, but they also learned about plagiarism, how timelines happen in chronological order, note taking and how to transfer notes into full flowing sentences that result in a book that students presented from today. 

Over the last month, they have learned so much and from my perspective, they really enjoyed this social studies project! It was a great first experience with research and paved the way for their upcoming country research reports (which will begin after spring break).
