Emily finished her Innovation project. She chose to study dogs and learned about three breeds. Unfortunately she lost one of her note fact sheets. Emily included two breeds on her poster about Dalmations and Rottweillers. She really enjoyed learning about the history of the breeds.

Interviewing Skills

In GATE today, the students interviewed adults about overcoming setbacks. Savanna interviewed Mr. AJ. She learned that he was in the Air Force and one day he had to run a mile in under 6 minutes. He couldn't do it. It took him more than six minutes. He kept going because he wanted to make his family proud. He learned that hard work pays off.
Savanna learned that you have to ask good questions, care about who you are interviewing and be serious. You have to make them comfortable so they will be interviewed. Savanna thought it was hard to interview someone she didn't already know.
