Reminder: Curiosity Project: Homework Week 5

WEEK 5: Week of March 31st

How Do Curious People Share Their Learning?

The main work of this week is to consider how to put your presentation together in a way that will help you share with the class or help other students learn from your presentation.  Therefore, there is only one other very quick task is required during this week.

Task 1: Monday

Answer the following questions in your Curiosity Journal:

How do you think you can share your learning?

Why do you think this is the best way to share your learning?

Student Sharing Options

You may share using other media such as:

  • making a poster
  • building a model
  • making a movie
  • using multi-media tools such as Google Presentations, Powerpoint, Prezi, Websites, etc…
  • Give a talk.
  • Another way you prefer (check with me first)
  • This link will give you a few ideas of what students at another school have done.


The sharing should not be an anxiety producing event. “The student” must be the obvious answer to the question: “Who’s sharing is this?”

If you or your child is having anxiety, please let me know so I can help.

Help and support your child to succeed, but don’t make it about the product. Work with your child and think with them but be sure not to get caught up in how you think it should look or go.  If you need to help them cut, or paste, or print etc… that’s fine, but be sure to leave the decision making up to them. The important thing to remember is that this experience is about the process of being curious and teaching others after going through that process. They need to be the ones making the decisions in order for them to learn from the process.

Task 2: Tuesday-Sunday

Work on how you are going to share your learning. After this week you will have next week and over the break to work on your project. Our celebration will be April 25th. The time is still TBA.


One thought on “Reminder: Curiosity Project: Homework Week 5

  1. Hi Beth,

    C has settled on a poster and has it sketched out. He got more books from the Darien library yesterday – he goes right to the reference librarian on the 2nd floor (and skips the children’s section).

    C has been working on it for the last few days as soon as he gets home from school. This is quite unusual for him and the project has displaced baseball and reading as his #1 post-school activity.
