South / Central America World Fair and upcoming due dates

7th Graders completed their first World Fair cycle today! The projects demonstrated learning in a variety of ways: they were creative, colorful, and insightful. Please scroll down for photos!

We debriefed in class today, both the World Fair process and the World Fair products. Many students noted that they took risks in this process, which paid off in terms of confidence, fun, and learning. Students remarked that they enjoyed what they learned about their conflicts, their research and writing processes, their time management, and their ability to plan for a large project. Noted areas of growth include using class time well, asking for help, and communicating with parents about needed materials.

Here are upcoming due dates for Africa’s World Fair project:
