Passion Project weeks 2 and 3: The “DO” portion

For the “Do” part of this project you will each need to “do” something related to your topic. 

During this “DO” portion the point is to take the knowledge they have and do something with it. This process will need to be recorded with photos, sketches, journal entries, videos etc… Some of the students will be cooking, building a model, creating art in the style of a particular artist, observing and taking notes on the behavior of 6 month old children, interviewing local actors or waitresses at their favorite restaurants. Students can interview, create, make phone calls to sites in order to find more information.
