5.  Chapel Talk

One of the long-standing traditions at Powhatan is the eighth grade Chapel Talk. Each eighth grader gets up in front of the school community and delivers an 8-10 minute presentation about a topic he or she is knowledgeable about. This capstone project showcases strategies Powhatan students have gained throughout their Powhatan careers such as research, writing, technology, communication, and collaboration.

This video explores the importance of experiential learning and the value of brining in experts from the real world to work with young learners. Follow along as students put on their muck boots and waded into the wetlands to discover which plants and insects were thriving in our calcareous muck fen. Learn more: CLICK HERE.
