Stuck in an Elevator

We need your help! Hurry! My partner, Ava, and I are doing a 20% project and really need your help. This is a community helping project that we have to finish by the end of the school year. We are doing this project in two of our sixth grade classes, PBL and Language Arts. Ava and I are donating art supplies to nearby schools who don’t have enough money in the…

The end is near!!

The most rewarding part of my project was getting to work with my partner and my teachers. It has been an amazing experience. I have learned to get outside of my comfort zone and express what I love most. I love to share my passion and to work with others. My teachers have been helping me stay comfortable and happy about my project. They have been telling me how to…

What if the GMS Takes Action speech is tomorrow?

I have accomplished planning most of my art night with my two mentors, making some example fliers for my art night, and gotten deadlines up to date. Ava and I talked to our mentors and have an exact date for our art night, May 19th. We have made some example fliers to advertise our project around our school, as well as adding more closer to the event. Finally, we have…

Pinch me, I’m Irish!

Have you ever wondered why people pinch someone who isn’t wearing green on Saint Patrick’s Day? People say if you don’t wear green on Saint Patrick’s Day you will get pinched. It has been an American tradition probably starting in the early 1700’s. Saint Patrick’s revealers thought that wearing green would make a person invisible to a leprechaun, fairy creatures that could see anyone (anyone not wearing green) would pinch the…

Art Night!

This week my partner and I accomplished practicing our elevator pitch speech. We got it approved by our teachers last week and are planning on filming our elevator pitches next week on Thursday. This is an assignment to go with our 20% project. In my elevator pitch, I am asking a famous person to donate art supplies to give to a school in need of them. This would help my project tremendously by…

Art, do your pART

This week I accomplished finishing my outline for my elevator pitch.  The elevator pitch is a project that we are doing for our 20% project in language arts and project based learning. The project is to make a video acting like we are walking onto an elevator and meet someone famous who can help us with our project. The point of the elevator pitch is to persuade the person to…

Week 3: 20% project

This week we got together with our mentors to talk about our project in person. I am feeling very confident with my project because our mentors already have a night planned so that we don’t have to organize another one. With our mentors, we talked about how we are going to do the project and what schools we are donating to. My goal that I would like to achieve next…

Update on my 20% project

My 20% project is to help other children near us who don’t have the extra money to afford the extra art supplies. Ava H., my partner, and I were going to help these kids by donating gently used or new art supplies to the schools near us. One of the things we accomplished this week was we got a hold of our mentors. Another thing we accomplished was that they…

My 20% Project

I found out my project idea this week. We wanted to donate art supplies to schools with low income because they can’t afford the supplies. We are working on our outline and what we want to say to the schools we are helping out. I plan to work on my speech and memorize it. I also plan to write emails to nearby elementary schools to help with a drive. Me…
