The school that my children attend requires them to complete a Personal Exploration Project during their 4th, 5th and 6th grade years. It's a fairly intense research project, spread out through the entire school year.
Sara's topic was "Cat's Bodies and How They Work". It's been a year of reading about cats, and Sara, quite frankly, is tired of it. I am glad that the end is in sight!
That said, Sara did get her act together and worked very hard on the "creative" aspect of the project. She chose to create an Alphabet Book and I think it turned out pretty cute.
As for me, I'm just glad that this research project is almost finished! One year down, Two to go. And then I get to start over again with Rebecca!
