Capstone Projects and Learning Celebration

Fourth grade scholars at RES have been participating in a once a week class, co-taught by teacher-librarian Beth Redford and enrichment teacher Darcie Rankin. The class focuses on digital literacy, critical thinking, and interest driven projects. Scholars’ culminating activities were independent, interest driven research projects. Each scholar self selected a topic and designed a Capstone Project to share his or her interests and knowledge. Fourth graders and their families and friends gathered on Monday, June 2 to share their Capstone Projects and celebrate their learning. We hope you enjoy the video of the projects and last night's celebration.

Digital versions of many of the projects are available at the links below:
