Fourth Grade Presents Capstone Research Projects

Congratulations to our fourth-grade class on successful presentations for their Capstone research class! 
This semester-long project focused on climate change. From greenhouse gases to sea-level rise and forest fires to melting glaciers, the students researched the problems that are facing humanity today.

After building background knowledge, they formulated research questions, dug into physical and digital resources, and sorted and organized their facts. They wrapped up the project the week before winter break by writing essays and showcasing presentations to their parents and fellow Lower School students.

For this semester, students will now develop a research question of their own choosing, conducting their own research.
