Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a male and female cicada? Or why the leaves fall from the trees? How about what things eat a piranha? We have lots of good questions! Our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders are starting their independent research projects. They choose a topic they are interested in, think about three fat questions (ask them the difference between fat and skinny questions), then they research to find their answers. Each student will publish their answers and teach the class about their topic. The second graders will be working together on their first research topic.
