Grade 5 Portfolio Breakfast

Grade 5 Portfolio Breakfast
Posted on 03/13/2015
BreakfastIn December 2014, 5th grade classrooms held Portfolio Breakfasts to show student work done in the fall. In Room 221 students read “Poems of Good Relation” composed during their study of Native Americans. They displayed “Circuit Boards,” a project in the Science unit on energy. The boards were constructed during a field trip to the Edgerton Center at MIT.

Social Studies writing included an opinion piece about the Boston Massacre. The project included a classroom enactment of the Boston Massacre Trial using primary source documents.

In Room 220, students shared a collection of odes written to honor ordinary objects they respect. They displayed webs that compared Native northwest culture and physical environment to their own. They also shared pre-investigative writing about their individually chosen I-Search topics (from the history of candy to cheetahs to a comparison of Italy and the United States).
