The Harrison 5th grade ELA Talent Development Group participated in the district Conservation Tag Line and Logo contest. This was an opportunity to use PBL (Project Based Learning) to address a real world problem, create a product and present to an authentic audience. They focused on using critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity to complete the project. The students placed first in the elementary division and received $200. Our next project is to decide how to spend the money for the benefit of students at Harrison.
