Thursday May 28th the Stafford Elementary cafeteria was filled with science projects completed by Mr. McLean’s fifth grade science class. The projects were on endangered species. Each student picked an endangered animal, researched it and then put pictures along with information about the animal on poster boards.
Jonathan McLean (science teacher) said, “Today the fifth graders are doing their endangered species project presentations. Each of them has a project poster that tells a little information about their animal and each of them has a start button in front of their project. It is set up like a museum exhibit, when someone comes along and wants to hear more information about a certain project they push the start button and that person starts telling about their animals. The posters look very good.”
Maddy Washington (6th Grader) said, “I think the fifth graders did a little bit better job than the sixth grade this year. They have more information on their projects.”
As you walked down the aisles of science projects you could see many students from other grades pushing the big button in front of the projects that they wanted to know more about. By the end of the day many more students and adults knew a lot more about what animals are headed for extinction, thanks to these very informative science projects.
Good job fifth graders!
