Dear reader, sorry that I forgot to ‘post this post’ on this blog. It’s now the summer holiday if you didn’t know. Anyway, this post is about the exhibition if you want to read it.
As I said in the last few posts, we had 32 areas of focuses to choose from to investigate for the exhibition. We had to write down our top 3 choices to investigate, 1st choice, 2nd choice, and 3rd choice. The teachers would put us into groups of 3 or 4 according to our choices. If we didn’t get our 1st choice, then we would get our 2nd choice, and if we didn’t get our 2nd choice, we would get our 3rd choice. I got my 1st choice, the Industrial Revolution. We made a purpose statement, to investigate how the Industrial Revolution affects the way we live today. So we did some tuning-in activities and talked a bit about what we knew already, and then we started finding out about our focus area. After we did some research, we sorted out our information and we chose areas that we wanted to investigate more to go further. We used research questions to guide our investigation, and we answered our research questions as we found out more information. After we went further, we drew conclusions and we shared our ideas and research to other group members.
When we finished investigating, we used the information and the main ideas of what we learned to produce our booth. On our booth, we had a long banner on top that I made, and we had some pictures below. We also had some facts up on the sides of the booth. We had 2 desks in front with a model factory that Julia (a member of our group) built. We also had a miniature steam engine that Charlie bought.
When the exhibition was over, we brought down our booth and cleaned the area. So that was the ‘end’ of our grade 6 exhibition.
