Project USA highlights some of our national treasures as well as our patriotic pride in a project-based learning assignment. It serves as a wonderful research project, a chance to practice delivering a speech, and put on a presentation for the parents. Each student is assigned a landmark and they become the expert on it. They create a posted and prepare a speech to delivery on presentation day. It is a great way to show the wonderful growth our First Graders have made this year. It is the gateway to our study of our Country, it’s symbols and has a focus on maps. It allows for the parents of the whole class to come together and celebrate the kids’ achievement as we wind down the year. GSES 1st graders have done an amazing job presenting this week to friends and family!
