Have you ever wondered what you can do as elementary students leave the 5th grade on their last day as an elementary student? Well, this project is for you! It incorporates the students writing a friendly letter to a rising 5th grader, full of advice and encouragement, and a cool "torch" project. Students make a torch out of a paper towel tube and other materials to put their letter into, and as they leave on the last day, they pass their torch to a rising 5th grader. The project guide includes teacher directions and student directions for writing a letter and making the torch. It can be easily modified to fit any grade level!
