JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – Fifth-grade talented and gifted (TAG) students at Creek View Elementary School brainstormed real-world problems associated with the fifth-grade social studies and science curriculum.
Each completed a research paper on a global topic and used the creative problem-solving process for ideas as to how fifth-graders could help solve these problems.
For a home project, students had to interview an expert in the field actively trying to solve the problem and then create a visual representing what they learned from it. These visuals were displayed during the TAG Contract Fair that was held for parents of fifth-grade TAG students and for the rest of the fifth grade to view.
