Capstone Project - Disease Prevention Brochure #resvt #cesuvt #vted

We would like to spotlight the work of one RES fourth grader who decided to learn more about illness and health for her Capstone Project. This was a broad topic, but she focused her research by asking the research question "What are the five most deadly diseases and how do we prevent them?" She collected information from books, the Internet, and by interviewing a local doctor. For her final presentation, she created the brochure below to share her learning with others. We are very proud of her work and that of her fellow fourth grade scholars! They will be sharing their learning and their final presentations at a Learning Celebration at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 2. Please contact Mrs. Redford or Mrs. Rankin for more information.
