For capstone, we don’t just have to research a topic, but you also have to research a main inquiry question and 5-7 sub questions.
My main inquiry question is “how does google influence people’s daily lives today”. My original question was “what makes google so popular?”. But after a little revision I got “how does google influence people today”, but again I decided that that wasn’t good enough. Luckily, I got a little help from my teacher Ms. Boyer and my final question is “how does google influence people’s daily lives today?” and that, I decided was a good question so I stuck with it. 😉 My sub questions are “when was google started?”, “what is next for google?”, “What are some of google’s biggest rivals?”, “How many people go to google search every day?”, and ” what is PageRank?”
Every year the whole 5th grade in the district does a huge research project called capstone. Each student has to pick a topic and research that topic and put together a slideshow or a mini movie for our final creation.
For capstone I chose my topic to be Google. I chose this topic because I am interested in technology and interested in google so I decided to pick the topic of google. Did you know that google was originally called backrub? Google is a great topic and that is why I picked it for capstone. 😉
My class is doing a project about immigration. We are supposed to make a stop motion clip about immigration. For this project, the class was split into groups. My group is Jack F, Leo, and me. Each group had a topic. My group’s topic is immigration then and now. Our process is to do research, then we will start making our script, after that we will create our props for our stop motion clip.The next part is hard, we have to film our stop motion clip. It had to be at least 1 minute long and each second will have 12 photos. That’s 720 photos a minute.
