Eighth grade students at Floyd Middle School recently presented their research on various careers to the school community. The students met the goals with success by conducting research projects to answer a self-generated question, drawing on several sources and generating additional related, focused questions that allowed for multiple avenues of exploration.
Additionally, students gathered relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, using search terms effectively.
They also assessed the credibility and accuracy of each source and quote. During the Career Fair, students shared the required skills, required education (high school classes and college), working conditions, job duties and responsibilities, and interesting research related to their chosen future careers. They also dressed the part and did an excellent job discussing their research and prepared visual displays with all guests.
We are proud of our students and the great scientists, musicians, military officers, doctors, engineers, game developers, publishers, artists, designers, physical therapists, chefs, lawyers, and outstanding citizens they will become!
