about a person your age who

has made
an impact in their community. Plan a
presentation to share with the class or
write a letter asking that person
questions about what they accomplished.

*Research to find more information
about the leaders for whom the Plano
schools were named.
Create a
presentation to share with the class.

*Create a diary of someone who might
have lived during the early 1900’s in
Plano. You might use the
Heritage

to assist you.


Science

*Plan and conduct an experiment with
matter.

*Research a scientist. Include
information about the discoveries made,
tools that may have been used, and
further question this scientist may have
had about the subject.

nt event that relates to
matter and create a poster making
people aware.
