We were so proud of ALL of our 5th graders that completed their poster for the contest last year. We sent 18 posters on to be a part of those judged at the county level. We are proud to say that 6 of our students made it into the top 10!!! Congrats to Bo Barker, Ava Branco, Isabella Clark, Hannah Watkins, Dominique Avendando, and Lillian Darling. UPDATE: Dominique Avendando placed first in the Regional Competition and got a Special Mention at the State level. Way to go!!!!
2017-2018 Water Conservation Poster Contest
We have begun talking to 5th graders about this year's Conservation Poster Contest. This year's focus is on water conservation, specifically the urban water cycle. This topic fits well in the science curriculum within the Ecosystems unit and the Weather unit. Below is the letter with more details and a copy of the rubric. These sheets will also be sent home with students.
We will be using Google Classroom to receive graphic organizers and store our research. The students will be students in the classroom before the end of September. They can access this at school AND at home. We will BEGIN researching in library and they will continue in their classroom and at home. Below is a study guide with a tremendous amount of information AND a plethora of links for research, all focused on water conservation and the urban water cycle.
