Cross-Curricular Project Presentations in the Library

Cross curricular (8) Over the past week matrix students have been presenting their cross-curricular projects to their teachers.  These projects are started in October and run until May.  It is quite amazing to see the students start off with their big idea and then narrow it down to a specific experimentation.  The project must encompass all their subjects – Math, Science, Geography/History, English and French.  Yesterday was the day that parents, school administrators and the general school population could look at the projects.  Needless to say, the Library was not quiet!
