PBL Done Well: 5th Grade Health Fair

This February, CRE's 5th grade students invited their fellow students as well as parents and friends to attend their Health Fair. Visitors were provided ample opportunities to learn about the systems of the human body, healthy vs. unhealthy food choices, and were given opportunities to view lifestyle plans that follow the healthy choices the students suggested. In addition to verbal presentations, the students made posters or billboards full of information and created booklets containing more in-depth research into their chosen topics.
