4th Graders Research Sea Creatures

As part of their science studies,  Saint James 4th grade students recently finished researching and writing a report on an assigned sea creature.  Research was gathered using at least one book and at least one website, with students utilizing some of their science class time to conduct research on the school’s iPads.  Students also designed a cover for their report during one of their weekly art classes.

For homework, 4th graders were tasked with creating a model of their animal using recyclable materials and/or craft-related items.  The finished projects were presented to classmates, giving students another opportunity to practice their presentation skills and allowing students to learn from their peers’ research.  Over the next few days, students will be showcasing/discussing their projects with students in some of the lower grades.  Below are a few pictures of students with their models and research reports (click to enlarge).
