5th Grade State Research Projects


Fifth graders at Gragson Elementary School just completed a month-long research project into one of the fifty states that make-up the Union. During this month long project, students learned how to conduct Internet research, use Cornell notes, cite using the Chicago method, and how to write longer narrative research papers. Upon completing their research, students then wrote essays and developed t-shirts, similar to what one might find at a souvenir store, that represents their respective state. This project covered reading, writing, history, geography, economic, civic, science, and art standards.
