Fifth grade students at Connolly School engaged in a six-week exploration of different cultures. Each class adopted a different continent and students then split into groups to research countries within that continent. Fifth graders wrote about geography, landmarks, food and other important aspects of culture, and the culminating project was a research paper written collaboratively with other students in the group. Children presented the projects and then experienced different foods related to the countries and continent they researched. Learning about different cultures can be a great way of developing an understanding of cultural diversity.

Connolly fifth graders engaged in the school’s annual science fair on June 7. Students worked in groups of two or three to explore different scientific concepts through inquiry, including absorbency, tooth decay, pulse, handedness, floating paper, producing shadows and memory. The fifth grade students then chose a topic to research and explore using the scientific method. Finally, the groups summarized their findings in their presentation.
