Library Class Projects

2018/19 SCHOOL YEAR PROJECTS

Second Grade Projects:

Classes chose an American symbol to research and create a paragraph. Each student then chose a sentence to illustrate for the presentation. Watch what they created below.

Mrs. Smith's class: American Flag

Mrs. Lagrua's class: White House

Mrs. Gentzyel's class: Washington Monument

Mrs. Cowburn's class: Bald Eagle

Third Grade Projects:

Mrs. Dillon's class: Yellowstone National Park

Mrs. Andrew's class: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Mrs. Roessner's class: Dry Tortugas National Park

Fourth Grade Projects:

Classes studied the Underground Railroad with their homeroom teachers this year. In library class we used resources from the Potter County Historical Society to find out about local people who were abolitionists and conductors, as well as buildings that were important on the Underground Railroad, and what Coudersport looked like in those times. We used GoogleMaps to look at certain known locations and compared the roads to the county roadmaps of the 1850s. We also studied primary and secondary sources related to this topic. Ask your child to tell you about the Mann family from Coudersport.

Fifth Grade Projects:

1. Book Trailer or Book Poster Project: Each student created a commercial to convince others to read their favorite book. When they were done writing their persuasive paragraph they could either create a book poster or book trailer using Animoto to promote it. Ask your child to show you their poster or follow these links to the book trailers.

2. Dream Vacation Project: Classes were asked where would they go on their "Dream Vacation." They created a slideshow using Google Slides to show me. They had to include at least three places they would go or things they would do, describe the weather in their location, and explain what kind of currency is used in their location (if it was in the U.S. they would tell me another place or thing they would do on their vacation). Ask your child to sign in to their Google Account to view what they came up with. In addition to the research, they each had to create a written Bibliography of their resources that were used.

Sixth Grade Projects:

We did several research projects this school year. In sixth grade I focus on research. This includes finding good sources of information, evaluating those sources, taking notes, putting what you learn about a topic into your own words, and citing the sources where you find your information. Ask your child to show you their Free Choice research project or their GoogleSlideshow on a place in Washington, DC. They are both in their GoogleDrive.
