Capstone #4

Today in my Capstone blog post I will be talking more about my site visit. And incase you didn’t already know, I went to the MetroPolitan Museum Of Arts, as my site visit.

In the museum there was an entire section just about the camp of fashion! When I say camp, I don’t mean summer camp… Camp means something a little bit crazy, and exciting! But I didn’t know this before we went. I thought it would literally be the evolution of fashion, but I was wrong. It was actually the camp of fashion. The camp of fashion means something sort of like crazy.

I learned a lot about camp fashion! For example I learned that when you dress camp you pop out and wear a kind of crazy outfit. I also learned that camp outfits can be made of all different types of materials, some of the outfits there weren’t even made out of fabric! For example there were outfits made out of money, like coins, and dollar bills!

I haven’t got my interview with Pam Hocstin yet, but I will be doing it soon.

Thanks for checking out my blog!

Capstone Blog Post #3

If you haven’t already read my other capstone blog posts, I recommend doing that so you know where I left off, and you know what Capstone is. But anyways, today I’ll be talking about where I’m at with Capstone.

I have been doing a lot of research lately. Personally I think my topic is easier to research on then others, because there are so many website and books about fashion throughout the years. I have made a mini booklet and that’s where I put all my research. This booklet also lets me keep all my work super organized. It helps keep it organized, because I can make a small section for each of my sub questions. And I have more than enough paper in my booklet.

The next step in my Capstone project is my interview, and site visit. For me finding this was easy because there are so many people who love fashion, and know a lot about it. And also for my site visit that was fairly simple to, because there are plenty of museums, and more than enough stores that I could go to. The person I will be interviewing is named Pam Hochstin. For my site visit I will be visiting the MetroPolitan Museum of art, because they recently opened a fashion exhibit.

Anyways I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Hope you come join me in my next post!

Capstone #2

As you might’ve known from my last blog post, I’m doing a project called, Capstone. In case you don’t know what Capstone is then let me explain. Capstone is this huge project, and you can choose any topic you want to research on. Now that you have had that small recap, I’m going to update you on what I have been doing.

My original topic was, how fashion has changed throughout the century. But then I thought to myself, it needs to sound fancier, because then more people will be interested in it… And then it hit me! The evolution of fashion! It is technically the same thing, but it just sounds fancier, and cooler.

After I did that I had to make a graphic organizer with my main inquiry question, and sub questions. This was pretty hard. I found this hard because I was having trouble with making them related to my main inquiry questions.

Capstone will definitely be a complicated project, but in the end it will be 100% worth it! Hope you tune in on my capstone #3!

Capstone #1

My grade and I are doing a project called, Capstone. I assume you don’t know what Capstone is so let me explain. Capstone is a fun project where students get to pick a topic they’re interested in, research it, make a slideshow, and present it to other people! Oh and I forgot to mention, it’s the biggest project of the year, wait, not just the year… It’s the biggest project you’ll ever do at elementary school!

So the first thing you have to do for this project is find a topic your interested in. Personally for me this was very hard. I mean, I’m interested in lots of things, but did I really want to do them, or is it to hard to research on? I always asked myself this, and some ideas I had was, the history of Netflix, how technology is taking over our world, seeing eye dogs, apple products, and more. And all of a sudden, “WAM!” It hit me right in the head! (Not literally of course) Fashion! I could do it on fashion! But then the problem came, that’s to broad of an idea… It had to be a little more specific… AHAH! How fashion has changed over the century! Perfect!

The next thing I had to do was tell everyone about my amazing idea, and I had to make a poster board, and think of a main question. When I was thinking of a question, I was like, “Oh please… this will be easy to think of a question! I can just add a has to it. Now it is how has fashion changed over the century!” And I thought I was genius. But no… It’s much much harder to think of a question then you would think. I mean, it’s been a week and I still don’t have a main question! Oh, wait, nobody made a question yet… But I’m making a small poster on questions to help me think.

Anyways, if you enjoyed this blog post, you’ll enjoy my next, so tune in next time! BYE!
