How have I improved on my skills?

I improved on my research skills because I learned a lot about what websites that are trust worthy and which ones that are not trust worthy. I also think I improved on my communication skills because I had to communicate and set up meeting with my mentors. I also think I did a good job on setting up interviews. I also think I did a good job on my self management skills because I stayed organized with my research and with everything. I also think I used my time wisely and I finished everything in time.

What was the biggest challenge that I faced during the process of the exhibition? How did I solve it?

The biggest problem that I had for Exhibition was not finishing in time. I got really nervous that I wasn't going to finish in time and I was very stressed. But I worked really hard and used my time wisely and got finished and I also worked on it a lot at home. Another problem I had was thinking of visual ideas. After that I started thinking really hard about what I can do and I thought of a great idea afterwards.

What did I learn about myself that I did not know before?

I learned that I have a very strong feeling about what is happening to animals and how we are finding new ways to help them. I also learned that working with a group can also be challenging because when you have a big group it takes longer to accomplish everything.

What was the most interesting aspect of the exhibition?

My favorite part about Exhibition is getting to share my knowledge with the whole Dwight school and getting to share my knowledge with all of the parents. My other favorite part about Exhibition is making everything because we get to be creative.

How did I like working in a group vs. working independently?

Here are the pros and cons about working in a group:

Cons

-May not agree with each other

-May not communicate with each other

-May full round and not get work done

Pros

-Get to know more people

-Have people to rely on

-Have people to help

-get to communicate with each other

What advice would I give to the students doing the exhibition next year?

Some advice I would give to the next fifth grade is:

-don's stress

-use your time wisely

-stay organized

-use trust worthy websites

-when you are presenting speak loudly and clearly

-communicate with your group nicely

-email your mentors and set up meeting with them

-set up at least couple of interviews and field trips
