Mary L. Fonseca Elementary School

      Grade 5 Research Project

At the end of the Reading Street Unit 2 with the theme of “What makes people want to do the right thing,” students were asked to research ways in which people can promote freedom. They worked through creating inquiry questions, locating resources and information, and analyzing their findings. Students then had to create a poster to present to their class.
