Dear Future Grade 5 Students

Dear future Grade 5 students,

Hi my name is Averie. In Exhibition our central idea was Actions, relationships and mindsets shape the global community. My topic was Drug use affecting health. I choose that topic because I was interested in learning about the good drugs and not just the bad. In this letter I will be giving you advice when you do Exhibition.

My first piece of advice is cooperate with your partner(s). I chose this because me and my partners didn’t get along. So we were spending most of our time arguing and not getting our work done.

My second piece of advice is use your time wisely and focus on your work. I choose this because most people including me and my group we didn’t use our time wisely so we didn’t get much done. I say this because I don’t want you to do the same thing.

My third piece of advice is once you get information write it right away and site you source. I choose this because you might lose your information and source like my group did a few times. So write your information right away.

I hope this letter helps you during Exhibition in working with your partner(s), using your time wisely and not forgetting your information/sources.

Best wishes,


Dear future grade 5s

Dear future grade 5s,

Hi my name is Supreet. I’m righting this letter because I want you to have a good exhibition experience.

My topic was Drug use affecting health. Our central idea was Actions, arelationships and mindsets shape the global community. As a group of grade fives you pick your central idea. In exhibition you have to pick and make your action. Your teacher picks your topic but you have to do a persuasive essay for your topic.

My first suggestion is that you should work separately if you start fighting because than you wouldn’t talk to each other and wouldn’t get fights. I’m saying this because it didn’t go well for us. Plus if you work separately then you we’ll probably get more work done. Other tip is that you should come back after 30 minutes or 15 minutes so you can tell each other what you did. More tips are that you should not work with someone your going to talk to.last tip I have for you is that when you work separately you should actually work instead of helping other groups.

My second suggestion is that you shouldn’t waste your time because  wasn’t our time by talking to other groups and fighting and we didn’t get anything done and then we had work beside the teacher and that wasent fun. Other tip is that you shouldn’t fight because that wastes time too. Anthor tip that I have for not wasteing time is that you should work in a room that you work well in because you might talk to other groups. Last tip is that you should not talk to other groups because you waste time. I am righting this because we wasted our time and we got nothing done and our prentation was good but bad too.

My last suggestion is that you should not listen to music because you can’t listen to your other partners and then you are doing nothing and there doing the work. Another tip you music is if you listen to music then put your volume lower so that you can here your partners talk and you can actually do work. I’m righting this because my partner listen to music and he didn’t do anything like work or help us he just sat there. Last tip for this is some people work good with music but then they start watching the videos and then they get in trouble.

In conclusion I hope exhibition is good for you and I hope that your prentation is going to be good plus exhibition is nine weeks and it goes very fast we thought it would be very long but it went very fast and sometimes you miss lots of periods. Please take my advice because it didn’t go that well for us so I want it to go well for you.

Best wishes,

Dear future grade five students,

I am a grade five student and I am writing to you to tell you about exhibition and I am going to be telling you a tip to get better at exhibition and I hope that this tip helps you.

my suggestion is when you are in your group don’t argue with them cause if you argue it just slows you down in your reasearch so try to include your group members idea instead of arguing with them

The reason I chose to tell you this tip is because for my group this was the hardest thing. We kept on arguing instead of doing reasearch and the we got in trouble for not doing are reasearch in time.

I hope this letter helps you because it could be really hard to do exhibition if you don’t know any thing about it and this letter will help you know more about your topic to sense your not to busy arguing with your group.

best wishes

sincerly Sukhman.



Exhibition Final Reflection

What is the biggest challenge you faced during the process of Exhibition?

The biggest challenge I faced during Exhibition was getting along with my group because my whole time we were ether not talking, not paying attention, talking to much, talking to other groups or being bossy and getting the rest of the group annoyed or angry that made us get frustrated faster and made us separate and made us fight which is bad for our mark and Exhibition in general and presenting to the parents. The second biggest challenge was that we didn’t get much research done because our group wasn’t doing what we had to do and instead we talked to other groups.
How did you work to solve or overcome that challenge?

We actually did not solve our problems because all we did was yell at each other and fight all the time and then we got mad and separated. We did not solve this because every time we tried someone got hurt.
What have you learned about yourself since being involved in Exhibition?

I learned that I get frustrated at the smallest things and that I work best with small groups like groups of two because if I’m alone I can’t focus because I want someone their to talk to about the project and because I don’t want to be lonely and when I work with a group of two or more I get things done fast and I can talk to them if I don’t know what it is or if they don’t know what it is i can help them and they can help me.
What was the most important, interesting or meaningful aspect of Exhibition for you? Why? 

The most important and meaningful aspect was presenting to the parents because my mom and dad and sisters were there and I wanted to make an impression to them and other people and parents so I worked as hard as I could to make them proud and after we were done they said that it was a amazing presentation and that they were very proud of me and that we did a lot better than they thought we were going to do.
What would you do differently, or be more mindful of if you could experience Exhibition again?

If I could do something differently I would go back and use more of my facts in the presentation because we didn’t use that much so it wasn’t that interesting. Try to get more information, interviews and Felid Trip’s because we needed more information to get more knowledgeable about our topic and because we didn’t answer most of our questions another thing is not to fight with my group because that was the thing that distracted us the most when we did our research and our presenting.

CHOOSE a feedback sticky. Why was this valuable feedback? What did it mean to you?

Exhibition final reflection

What is the biggest challenge you faced during the process of Exhibition?

The biggest challenge that I faced in the process was not fighting and we didn’t get along, because of that we didn’t get that much work done and we stared getting worried and frustrated. That made us even worse and we had to work separately so we wouldn’t fight or we wouldn’t talk to other groups and we get in trouble for doing that. Some other things that were challenging was getting everyone to work on different things because we wanted to help each other and work on it together so we got one thing done but everything else was still to be done so we didn’t get those things done and we were behind. We get everyone working because some people didn’t want to work so the other people had to do all the work.


How did you work to solve or overcome that challenge?

We solved our problems by working separately because we got In fights and that took time from working and then we got of track so we thought if we worked separately then we wouldn’t get of track and it worked but then some of our group members didn’t want to work separately so we had to work in a separate room so we didn’t talk to anyone or we didn’t fool around with other groups. But then the teachers had to film in that room and we had work in a different room and we started talking to other groups. So after that we worked in Mr. Turners and we were fine for the rest of Exhibition.


What have you learned about yourself since being involved in

I learned that when I get frosrated I tend to over take and make people do things because I don’t want to do them so I ask if they can do it but they don’t like the thing because it’s boring for them so I tell someone else in my group to do it and they don’t do it right so at the end I end up doing it because they didn’t do it right or they didn’t want to do it . Some others I learned about my self was that when I do work I don’t want anyone to interrupt or when someone ask me a question I don’t answer because I’m working.


What was the most important, interesting or meaningful aspect of Exhibition for you? Why?

The most meaningful aspect was our creative art peice because we put lots of work on it and people complimented us on our poster that we made because it was pretty. Some examples of what people said are I really like your poster it’s very colourful and I like your hand made white boards plus the picture is amazing other example is it was very eye catching and it made your station pop. Some of the most interesting facts were that Drugs can be good and that good drugs like prescription Drugs can be bad.



What would you do differently, or be more mindful of if you could experience Exhibition again?

The thing that I would do differently would be work more separately because we got in lots of fights and when we worked separately for a tiny bit and it was really good we got things done and we didn’t talk to other groups as much plus we had timers of when to meet and we all knew the spot we were going to meet. Another thing that I would change was working in Mr. Turners room because there we worked really well and in the other rooms we work very well, we started talking to other groups.

What advice and suggestions would you like to give to the students who will work through Exhibition next year?

The advice that I would give to the future grade fives is don’t fight and work together,try to work separately if that better for you or work together what ever is better for you plus don’t talk to other groups because when you talk to other groups because that wasn’t time and time fly by our group thought that 9 weeks is a lot of time but time flys don’t waste it by talking to others or fooling around plus time flys in your presentation because we thought that 1 hour / 2 hours is going to take long but it wasn’t that long.



Choose a feedback sticky . Why was this valuable feedback?What did it mean to you?

This was meaningful because they talked about how detailed it was and I thought that we didn’t that much detail so that made me happy because we tried to work our hardest and and it paid of. I’m also happy about getting everything done.

Final reflection

1 Biggest  challenge we faced during the exhibition process is siteing are sources and it is the biggest challenge because we got in trouble by mr turner for not siteing are sources so for the rest of the reasearching time we had to site are sources.

2 We overcame this challenge by doing are work for the whole reasearching time and not fooling around.

3 A thing I have learned about my self during exhibition is that I work better alone cause if I am in a group my group keeps on talking and that distracts me from doing my work but when my group makes me do my work alone I always finish on time.

4 The best part of exhibition for me is makeing the creative art piece because it is fun to make it and it gave us a brake off of researching.

5 If I could do exhibition over again a thing I would change is that when we are working we would work in a quite space where there were no other groups so we would not talk to the other groups and finish are work on time.

6 If I could give the future grade fives some advice it would be don’t fight with your group cause that just gets you frustrated and it makes you slower at doing your work so instead of getting mad at your group member try to involve there idea.

7 The best feedback we got from the sticky notes on the wall is the one that said drug use like the  minne game and survey that was the best feedback cause it was about are group and it helps us know what people liked about are exhibition.

This is the sticky note I was talking about.
