ABC40 Honor Roll – 5th Graders Hold Press Conference

Springfield, Mass (WGGB)- The fifth grade students at Bowes Elementary School completed a two month long research project yesterday and presented their findings at a press conference.

The project was designed to make life a little easier for Santa and parents this holiday season. The kids took a school wide survey to find out what kids really want for Christmas this holiday season. They also researched the prices of these popular gifts as well. They presented their finds in a presentation to the media. Not only was the project fun but also taught the fifth graders several different lessons including research, marketing and public speaking.

Some of the most popular gifts this year include video games, the kindle fire and the iPad.
