Attention 6th, 7th, and 8th Graders

As we QUICKLY approach the end of the year, so does our 8 month project that we started back in October. Here is a"brief" description of what is needed and what is expected by the time we turn everything in on May 21, 2019.  

  • The last day to work on your project in Monday, May 20, 2019

  • Set up for the Fine Arts & STEAM Festival is on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 after lunch

  • You will present your projects: Future City (7th & 8th Grades) and Planetary Colony (6th Grade). There is a presentation during the school day for the students and one at night from 6:00 - 8:00 pm

You are getting Graded on four (4) aspects of the project with four (4) separate grades. Please make sure that you complete all these tasks prior to Tuesday, May 21, 2019. SEE THE EMAIL WITH ALL THE EXPECTATIONS THAT I SENT A FEW WEEKS AGO. Here are the four (4) Final Project  Grades

  • Final Project: Model (10 Points)

    • Check your SCALE (I will literally come around with a ruler)

  • Final Project: Binder (10 Points)

    • Budget, Designs, Research, Plans, Images, Essay

  • Final Project: Essay (10 Points)

    • 1,500 Word MAXIMUM (you must share it with me via Google Drive AND print it for your binder)

  • Final Project: Google Slide (10 Points)

    • This is an extension of your ESSAY but with images and organization since it's a presentation (MUST SHARE WITH ME VIA GOOGLE DRIVE)

Time is NOT on our side - but you got this as long as you work together and communicate. Here is the timeline of what is left for you to work IN SCHOOL

If you have to bring pieces of your project home, you may do so. You should also work on your essay, binder, and/or google slide at home too. DO NOT WAIT TILL THE LAST MINUTE. I would hate to keep you off Honor Roll because you did not complete your project for my class.

A Few Additional Reminders:

  • Check the Budget Template that I email your today. Please complete this and put it in your binder.

  • Your Tri-Fold Poster is not needed, but will be accepted as Extra Credit

  • Keep Cleaning up after yourselves and leave your makerspace organized and neat

  • Look at the EMAIL that I sent you with everything you must include in your project - There are NO SURPRISES!

  •'s almost over.

I am so proud of all the teams for all your hard work and dedication. If you check your grades in Parent/Student Portal and see that you have a grade that's less than an "S", don't worry, just keep working and make sure you complete your project with your team.
