Research Projects Showcased at Deasy PTA Meeting

With the help of STEAM teacher Jessica McKenna and their second-grade teachers, Deasy students have been learning how to conduct research. Each class focused on a select type of professions or careers, such as inventors, explorers, business leaders, athletes, history makers and authors, to research specific individuals within those categories.

The students learned how to access internet databases such as PebbleGo and Abdo Zoom. They also learned how to take notes and used them to create sentences. The classroom teachers then taught them how to create paragraphs with their sentences. The project ended with the students displaying the information they learned with either a poster, mural or digital book.

One group from each second-grade class was selected to share their presentations at the February PTA meeting. Principal Melanie Arfman, Mrs. McKenna and the grade two teachers supported and assisted the students at the meeting to successfully showcase their projects.
