5th Grade Projects

This webpage will contain objectives and exemplars of projects required from fifth grade students during the year at Cameron.  Each project has an attachment with specific guidelines to help students and parents better understand the project.  There is also a copy of the rubric that will be used to grade each project.  If at any time you have questions regarding a 5th grade project, please speak with your child's teacher.

On Native American Culture

The purpose of this project is to allow students to learn about a Native American group in a fun, creative way. This activity should help each student to better understand a particular Native American culture.

This project will consist of two separate parts; the culture report will be Part 1 and the shelter model will be Part 2. Both the report and the shelter model must be about the same tribe. No exceptions! Therefore, each student should pick the tribe that interests him or her the most! Click here for the written report guielines and rubric  and model

Persuasive Advertisement

Students will create a new product to advertise.  They will need two visuals:  1) a poster, 2) the product and 3) a one page write-up form with a graphic organizer to be completed.  This write-up form and graphic organizer will be provided by the teachers.  Be creative and have fun with this project.  Click here

Famous Person in American History

The Famous Person Project will allow students to research a person who influenced the American Revolution and submit a speech.  This speech will be the first part of this project.  Using the information on the speech, your child will do an oral presentation with a character billboard to their class from the perspective of their famous person. 

During the oral presentations, the teachers would like to videotape the students.  A Video Permission Slip must be completed and signed by parents prior to the project deadline. The purpose of videotaping will be so students can view their performance and use it as a learning tool.  Click here
