Middle School Passion Project: Home

Use this guide as you embark on your personal project!

Friday: Introduction

When choosing a topic, think about: 

  • What are you good at?
  • What do you get excited about?
  • What do you like to read about?
  • What have you learned about that makes you want to know more?

Monday: Prior Knowledge

Tuesday: Resourcefulness

Look at the boxes in the center column on this Libguide to find books (print or ebooks) and databases that will help you learn more. 

*We are trying out a new database called Research Rocket that has some really fun ideas for passion projects. Give it a try!

Be sure to think about the reliability of the sources you use! 

  • Who is the AUTHOR?
  • What is their BIAS?
  • Is the CONTENT what you're looking for? Is it correct?
  • Is the information up to DATE?
  • EVALUATE: Is this a good source for you?

Wednesday: Responsibility

Remember, if you take information or ideas from somewhere, you should give credit to the sources of your information. That might look like a works cited (use Noodletools!), or it might look like links on a slideshow or poster. 

Thursday: Reflect

What will you do with what you learned this week? Maybe you want to continue the project throughout the summer holiday!

Project Description

Search the library catalog to see if there are books in the library or ebooks in Sora that will help you learn what you need for your passion project. If you're in Delhi, you can use the form to get books delivered to you at gate 2. If there are books that you want added to Sora, fill out the book request form.

You can also try these digital book platforms to find books on your topic.
