20Time Project - Final Demonstration

Students and Parents,

So… what’s the deal with your child’s 20Time Project?  My original due date for completion was going to be May 1st.  Well, let’s just say that we’ve had a more than a few unique occurrences and opportunities for our Fifth Graders over the past month that have pushed that date back a bit!

With that in mind, I’m asking that every fifth grader completes and demonstrates their project to me by Monday, May 22nd.

What that completion and demonstration looks like, however, will vary depending on the project.  It’s up to your child!

  • Maybe your child wanted to build a garden for their church, and they have photos of them working on the planting boxes. 
  • Maybe they wanted to design a prototype of a robot, and they actually bring it in to show me what they made. 
  • Maybe they wanted to organize a trash pickup around town, and they wrote up a quick paragraph explaining why they wanted to help the community in this way. 
  • Maybe she or he worked in a group to create something, and the group created a video showing what they made in action.  

On the day the project is done, they must show me whatever best “demonstrates” their project, either by bringing it to school or emailing it to me at

I’m then going to ask them THREE questions:

1. Why did you want to do this for your 20Time Project?
2. What was the biggest challenge you faced while working on this project?
3. What are TWO lessons that you learned while working on this project?

Important - Once it’s done - Bring it in! Don’t wait until May 22nd!  

If you have any questions, please email me at
