Each year, Wellan’s sixth grade students complete their third year of Upper Elementary with an extensive independent research project on a subject of their choosing. They spend months diving into their topic, gathering sources, writing a research paper, and creating a presentation for their peers, teachers, and families. This year’s sixth grade class wowed us with their depth of knowledge in a range of subjects: evolution, type 1 diabetes, the Fibonacci Sequence, the behavior and anatomy of cats, and the fall of the Roman Empire. All students presented with poise, preparedness, and confidence — experts in their chosen field.
We congratulate our sixth graders for their hard work in their research as well as their thorough, engaging presentations. Bravo!
