Goal Setting:

1. What specific questions does your group have about your research topic (or questions you think the public may have)?
  • Why are bees so important
  • Why should we like them if they sting us
  • How a bee dies other than age and stinging something
  • How a bee gets its specific job
  • How a bee is born
  • What do bees eat other than honey
  • Are bees a different size when there born
  • How do bees interact with technology

2. What specific goals does your group want to achieve by the end of the school year?
  • Present to at least one person
  • Answer all the questions
  • Learn at least one new thing
  • Share information to the public
  • Go to the beehives at least once
So far all we really had the opportunity to do was to learn at least one new thing about bees so now we want
to learn even more about bees and their life cycle, and finish the rest of our year goals.

3. What specific goals
does your group want to achieve by the end of the second Quarter (1/27/17)?
  • Get to know each other better/ learn at least one new thing about each other
  • Learn at least one new bee fact each day
We got to know each other pretty well and learned at least one new fact about each other by the end of the second quarter.
We also probably didn't learn something about bees each and day, but we learned a lot about bees and there life cycle.
We want to learn more about bees though.

4. What is your step-by-step Action Plan to achieve the goals you've set for Quarter 2? Who will be in charge of each step?
  • We can each individually look at our goal and then Jack will do his part in the next step.
  • Jack will look over the goal and tell the team members how we can achieve it
  • Henry and Ruby(Ruby will supervise the research) will research the topic we need to look up and Ruby will put the info on the wiki
  • Nolan will brainstorm ideas of how to share the news
  • Ally will do a draft and/or practice presenting
  • We can all write it down and/or present it
  • Ruby will answer the questions, but the group can help out too.
  • Ruby will edit the wiki after the presentation or before depending on when it is due. We all can supervise her too.
  • THEN REPEAT(again and again and again and again and again and again and again etc.)
