TED talkPrior to the February break, the 5th grade students presented their very own TED Talks to their families. TED Talks originally began with Technology, Entertainment and Design topics. Now, TED Talks cover many, many topics.

The students chose a topic they cared about. The TED Talk provided them with an opportunity to deliver an impassioned speech to inform and in some cases persuade the audience about their topic. Topics ranged from reasons not to smoke, benefits of solar panels, no homework, taking care of our earth, longer lunch, bullying, the spirit of giving, and time is an illusion. Dosia spoke thoughtfully about being yourself. She said, "Be brave enough to have your own personality. Be proud of your differences. We were all born to stand out."
