Exhibition:  the Capstone project of the PYP!

A BIG event is coming in fifth grade!  On Friday, June 9, fifth graders will present their final IB project, called Exhibition.  We will begin brainstorming topics in the next couple of weeks and the work will begin on learning more about our topics, developing an action and making a presentation to our school and greater community on what we have learned.
