Learning in Depth in Middle Years
Grade 6 student William has been digging into research of the Monkey-Tailed Skink in his Learning in Depth (LiD) project and is integrating his learning across subject areas. Not only is he learning research and presentation skills, but he is implementing this learning in English Language Arts through fictional creative writing. In addition, he is creating a persuasive writing piece to convince his family to consider adding the Monkey-Tailed Skink to their family of pets.
This photo shows him holding a wood-carving of a dragon inspired by his passion for reptiles that he has been working on in his free time. His passion for all things reptilian is demonstrated in this photo of his hand-crafted wooden dragon carving that he has been working on.
