I created this project so that my kids would not stop learning over spring break, but would be learning something that they want. The project is to learn a new skill, any skill they want. They can learn to knit, bike, bake a pie, juggle, whatever they want as long as it involves a new skill.
Students are required to do a little research and find resources to help them on their quest. Resources can be books, videos, internet, family members. Also included is a check list for presentations
Finally they need to present their new skill in class the week after spring break. Just a short 5 minute presentation showing what they learned.
