Sixth Grade Project Based Learning (PBL) Showcase

Sixth grade researched three cultural forces in the development of the United States: Native Americans, colonists, and explorers. They were charged to take a position then prepare to communicate through speaking and visual representation the group they felt was most impactful. Our researchers worked to persuade a diverse audience (parents, teachers, students in grades 4) of their position. Creative and critical thinking, resilience, communication, and making connections all at work.
