5th Grade ELA Magazine Research Project

Last week the students in Mrs. Fitzpatrick's ELA class began a magazine research project.  Each student chose a broad topic-such as baseball, dance, and Walt Disney-that they will study and break down into smaller "articles" for their magazine.

After Mrs. Fitzpatrick introduced the project to the class, Mrs. Ardizzoni and Miss Carney went to Rm. 215 to help the students begin their research and discuss their topics.  Once the topics were set, Mrs. Ardizzoni and Miss Carney used library time to pass along helpful research tips and discuss how to cite their research, both print and online.

Work will continue this week as time allows with PARCC testing.  We can't wait to see these magazines take shape!
